This beautiful set of 24K Gold on Sterling Silver
rounds depict 36 different forms of wildlife considered to be
endangered in the wild. The medals were designed by Joseph Di
Lorenzo and Marcel Jovine. They were produced by The Wittnauer
Precious Metals Guild and marketed by the Longines Symphonette
in the early seventies. Technical assistance was provided by
the Sierra Club.
These sterling silver medals were minted in hi-relief
and electroplated with 24K Gold. These medals are in mint, undamaged
condition housed in custom frames with information sheets (3
missing) on each of the animals featured. The customized trays
fit in the case pictured above which features a large 2 1/2 inch
bronze Plains Bison medal on the lid.
These GP sterling silver medals weigh 34-37 grams
each and contain over one troy ounce of pure silver each. The
complaete set contains over 36 ounces of pure silver. The medals
are pictured larger than their actual size of 40mm. The edge
of each medal is serial numbered with Longines Symphonette 24K
Gold E.P. on Sterling embeded in the edge.
