Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 10337)

The 1925 Medal is part of a series of Classic Commemorative coins struck from 1893-1954. The specific variety is Norse. Struck in Philadelphia and designated as a Proof (PR) strike, this coin is made of 90% gold; 10% copper from a mintage of 47 struck.
The 1925 Norse medal is an unmonetized octagonal-shaped silver piece honoring the centennial of the Norwegian ship Restauration arriving in America. The ship carried many Norwegian who went on to lead successful lives in their new homeland, with a great number of these immigrants settling in Minnesota. The piece was intended by its Congressional champion, Ole J. Kvale, to be a commemorative half dollar, but with so many already commemoratives already approved during the year, a medal became the likeliest option for authorization. Variations of the medal were struck at the Philadelphia Mint.

100 examples of the Norse commemortive medals were struck in gold with the proof format. 53 coins were unsold and subsequently melted leaving just 47 coins distributed to the public. Quite rare and also quite beautiful.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value.
