The Global Music Awards medallion was specifically designed for the Global Music Awards by the Northwest Territorial Mint. The Mint creates some of the world’s most famous medallions including official US Presidential Inaugural Medals, the Medal of Honor, the National Medal of Science and the Pulitzer Prize. Medallions form a lasting tribute, rich in value and heritage, and leave their impression on generations regarding your musical achievements.
The Global Music Awards medallion is a masterpiece of medallic art with an image by Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975). Benton is considered the “Mark Twain” of American art because his fluid, sculpted figures capture the essence of and speaks to the sensibilities of everyday people. The image is classic Benton; a populist, democratic representation expressing the powerful rhythms of music in everyday life in every country around the world. Benton recognized that sound is everywhere in our lives and it occupies the core of our thinking, feeling and happiness.
The 3” medallion sits on a wood base. The thickness is about .64 cm (.25”). The medallions are weighty, over eight ounces. They are die struck using 3-D relief brass and are golden in appearance.
For medallions shipped to countries other than the United States, you are responsible for all import taxes/duties imposed by your country.
