CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP, & KRNV) — Orders are being taken for the second of four commemorative medallions marking Nevada's 150th anniversary of statehood.

The first set of medallions depicted the Nevada state seal. The second features a miner. All have the Nevada sesquicentennial logo on the back.

Each 1-ounce silver medallion is made from silver from the Coeur Rochester Mine near Lovelock and stamped on the historic Coin Press No. 1 at the Nevada State Museum. They are available for $100.50 each.

Copper medallions of similar design are being sold for $15.

Medallions can be ordered at the Legislative Gift Store or through its website.

Sales of the medallions help fund the Nevada 150 events and yearlong celebration. For more information about Nevada 150, go to their website.

Wells Fargo is the sponsor of the medallions.

WOW WOW WOW,..I like the idea of a commemorative coin from the Carson mint, but $100 a piece for $18 worth of silver. CRAZY. Make it affordable so the citizens of Nevada can have a small piece of Nevada History. $100 a pop is ludicrous. And with 4 coins in the set, you have to plop down over $400! Who is stupid enough to do that? In this economy who can afford it?
