1925 Norse-American Centennial Medal. Gold. Swoger-24C. Proof-65 (PCGS). Many consider these to be part of the original classic commemorative coin series. The gold medals of the Norse-American Centennial issue are quite rare with a mintage of 100 pieces, of which only 47 were released, the balance melted. These were struck in a Matte Proof format with microscopic reflectivity when examined under a light. The surfaces on the present coin are clean and attractive. While any gold Norse medal is desirable, at the Gem level they become even more so.
