Medallic art company ltd.

DEFINITION

A major source of U.S. commemorative medals and awards, it was founded in 1903 by Henry Weil, a French sculptor living in New York City. The company was headquartered there until 1972, when it moved to Danbury, Connecticut. In 1972, the company moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and in 1997 to its present location of Dayton, Nevada, close to the famous Comstock Lode silver mines and Nevada gold fields. Today it is the oldest and largest private mint in the United States. Among the medal artists who have worked for the Company are Alexander Sterling Calder, Robert Aitken, Cyrus Dallin, and Janet De Coux.
