Carson City, Nev. – Orders for the second design of the Nevada Sesquicentennial medallions will end at midnight on April 30. This design is the second of four different medallions which will be released at different dates throughout the Sesquicentennial year for purchase.

The second medallion, depicting a Nevada miner on the front and the Nevada Sesquicentennial logo on the back, is a valuable purchase and a way for all Nevadans to be involved during the Sesquicentennial.
