 The World Stamp Show-NY 2016 Medal

A very limited quantity of the World Stamp Show-NY 2016 medals are being minted. The medal is custom die struck in antique bronze, measuring 2” x 3” inches and weighs almost eight ounces.

The medal, designed by Niko Courtelis, features the World Stamp Show NY2016 logo on the obverse within a raised stamp border, while the back features a stylized magnifying glass that creates an area for medal recipients’ names to be custom engraved.

The medals are being minted by the Northwest Territorial Mint / Medallic Art Company using 900 tons of pressure at a production facilities in Northern Nevada. Medallic Art Company was founded in 1903, and is American owned and operated.

Awards Ceremonies

Three award ceremonies are planned to recognize both philatelic and literature exhibitors. We hope all attending exhibitors will be able to attend and receive their medals, certificates and special prizes personally from World Stamp Show-NY 2016 officials. Otherwise national commissioners will accept these on behalf of the exhibitors. The exhibition’s top three awards, the Grand Prix National, Grand Prix Internationale and Grand Prix d’Honneur will be the only awards presented at that evening’s Palmares dinner.
