Tradition plays a significant role in official educational events such as commencement exercises. Maces are as much a part of those events as the traditional “Pomp and Circumstance” march that accompanies graduates during commencement ceremonies.
If you are unfamiliar with maces, they are the wooden staffs typically adorned with custom-designed medallions specific to that school, college or university. A mace bearer carries the staff in front of the school’s president or other leaders during processions. They also are used as stationary decorations near a podium or microphone during important speeches.
Medalcraft Mint, a Wisconsin-based leader in the design and production of maces, collaborates with institutions to create just the right look for new or updated maces.
Maces often include custom-designed medallions
Custom-designed brass medallions are one way that schools differentiate their maces from those of other institutions. Often featuring an antique finish, brass medallions contrast beautifully with the darker tones of the high-quality wood that makes up the bulk of the staff.
Medalcraft Mint will work with your team to design the perfect imagery for the medallions on your mace. We then use a die-striking process to produce exquisite reproductions for maces that represent your institution’s commitment to quality.
