  • Despite the hurdles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the committee carried forward the commemorative medal tradition.  In particular, the committee partnered with Medalcraft to design and produce the private mint’s sixth official presidential inaugural medal.
  • The committee sold the 2021 Medal via its merchandising website for several days in advance of President Biden’s inauguration.  The listing was removed shortly thereafter.  The limited number of medals, which were manufactured to order, reflects this unusually short period of availability.
  • The 2021 Medal was produced in bronze and silver versions.  No gold medal was authorized for public sale.

A detailed guide to the Medals can be found here — The Book.  Also, the Medals are discussed on this Coin World podcast and this Newman Numismatic Portal Symposium presentation.
