The first 20 silver medallions were minted on 29th September 2012, but contained a number of imperfections. We've been adjusting the dies and are currently minting the first batch of 50 for release. As orders come in we will be producing further batches. Each medallion will be supplied with a Batch and Unit number uniquely identifying it. This will be important to protect if purchasers wish to retain and enhance the value of their purchase over time.
