    1962 Seattle World's Fair Gold Medal Set

    Set of 1962 Seattle World's Fair Gold Medals. This set consists of one large (64 mm.) medal, eight medium (38 mm.) medals, and one small (33.5 mm.) medal, each struck in 14K gold. The large and small medals were struck by the U.S. Mint while the eight medium size medals were struck by the Metal Arts Company of Rochester, N.Y. The two medals produced by the U.S. Mint were designed by George Tsutakawa. It is believed that just four of these sets were produced in gold, with one set reportedly held by the Smithsonian Institution.
