Medalcraft Mint Collegiate Medallions

Our opportunity: Help a university prepare for the ceremonies to come

The University of Massachusetts Medical School annually presents a series of individualized collegiate medallions for endowed name professorships and another dozen chancellor’s medals for specially recognized individuals. The school put the presentation ceremonies that accompany these medallions on hold during the pandemic, but that didn’t stop Tim Rice, the director of university events, from being prepared for better times.

The collegiate medallions required an updated design featuring the UMass Medical School’s logo on the front rather than the previous Massachusetts state seal, along with the new recipients’ names engraved on the backs of their respective pieces.

Tim worked with Medalcraft Mint sales rep Jenifer Baker to hone in on just the right look prior to approving the order. The copper medallions are 2.5 inches wide with an antique finish and a bright blue neck ribbon.

“Jenifer was just terrific. She usually got back to me within 24 hours and we were able to get everything approved online,” Tim explained. “We wanted to make sure we had the medallions on hand so when the pandemic is over, we can present them.”
