    I'm not sure these are widely known, but the "So-Called Dollar guy, Jeff Shevlin, conscripted Dan Carr of Moonlight Mint to create a 100th anniversary restrike of the HK-449/450, 1920 Manila Mint Opening commemorative medal.

    Using the original 1920 US Mint Woodrow Wilson President obverse die and a 2020 redesigned Manila Mint reverse die, these medals pay tribute to the only overseas mint in US history.

    Medals are being made in a variety of metals - gold, silver, copper, brass, nickel, aluminum, and tin.

    I was fortunate enough to have acquired the following.

    Nickel

    Brass

    Copper

    And Silver Select (silver w/gold gilt)

    Per typical Moonlight Mint releases, mintages of individual types remain limited.

    The medal struck in gold weighs in at 1.6 troy ounces with a mintage of only 9 pieces.

    Here are a couple photos of the original 1920 Wilson / Manila Mint Dollar.

    Using the original obverse die and with only small changes to the reverse die (date changed to 2020 and "Opening" changed to "Anniversary") this tribute medal captures all the beauty and appeal of the original.

    I thought you might like to see these.

    Are these medallic orientation or coin orientation.
    In other words do they flip like a book or us coin alignment?
    There seems to be a clash on all of them.

    Most are coin flip. Shevlin did produce a few of what he calls "novodels" or intentional minting "errors" and over strikes of other coins.

    Jeff sent me the following photos. I tried to get a bunch of these but was only able to grab two . . . .

    That "cowlick" is a clashed die from the original reverse. The lines in front of Wilson's head are part of the original die clash as well.

    Here are some photos posted on another forum identifying the areas of the clashes.
