It’s not uncommon for exemplary contributions to get lost in the crowd within an organization. That’s why Lansing, Michigan-based Dean Transportation, and Dean Charter and Tours (DBA Dean Trailways of Michigan) is making a point to recognize individuals who go above and beyond with a custom-designed Dean Coin.
Dean looked to Medalcraft Mint to create a timeless piece that signifies the family-owned company’s profound gratefulness for the contributions people make to the Dean organization. This includes dedicated employees, customers, transportation partners and the communities it serves.
The 1.75-inch nickel silver coin features an antique finish and enamel colorfill. The green and white Dean colors on one side and a yellow band with the American flag on the other side represent the company’s yellow school buses and white motor coach buses.
Dean Transportation’s fleet of more than 1,600 school buses transports over 80,000 students per day. The Dean Charter and Tours fleet includes more than 50 motor coaches, small buses, vans and sedans that transport sports teams, students, tourists and corporate groups nationwide.
“The Dean Coin signifies the value, gratitude, and heartfelt appreciation we have for everyone who facilitates our goal to connect people to purpose,” states Kellie Dean, president and CEO of Dean Transportation. “We are extremely appreciative to work with and support an American company, Medalcraft Mint, on the development of a remarkable product that accurately conveys the intended message.”
