CUSTOM DESIGNS AND ORDERS
Since we are a mom and pop shop, we can and do make custom medallions. Keep in mind, it is a process- from design and wax carvings to mold making. Unless you are making a number of medallions, it would likely be cost prohibitive. If you are wanting a large amount, the design and mold costs usually end up adding pennies to the piece. Contact us, if you would like to talk pricing.

Star, Idaho Legacy Coins
I have been very blessed to work with Heritage Medallions on the design of two special coins for all outgoing and returning missionaries in the Star Idaho Stake. The idea came to me after much thought and prayer regarding what things I might share with our missionaries as they were entering the missionary field. I really wanted them to remember the advice I had for them and to have something as a token that would remind them of the importance of their work.
Ultimately what we decided to do was to give each missionary a numbered coin to carry into the field (legacy coin) that has the "4 keys to success" (the message I wanted to share with them) on the back side of the coin, with our Stake name on the front. In the stake we have an electronic/printed record of each coin and we ask each missionary who carries it into the field to record their thoughts and testimony on the sheet of paper entering and returning from their mission that corresponds to their coin number. The missionary returns the coin to me upon completing their mission and that coin is then passed on to another missionary to carry into the field. Each missionary is given a copy of the previous missionary’s thoughts/testimony as well as a record of the mission the coin has been to around the world. They then add their thoughts/testimony and the coin continues its legacy.
I have been amazed at the excitement and emotion that is exhibited as each missionary learns the history of the coin they are presented with (in the event they aren't the first to carry it into the field). It has become something they really treasure and attach a great value to. I have had countless missionaries tell me that many times in the mission field when they were having a particularly hard time with something, they pulled out the coin and looked at the advice on the back of it and with the help of The Lord were able to keep moving forward to a brighter day.
There have been missionaries who have recounted miracles in having their coin preserved including one who was in a Typhoon in the Philippines and who lost everything but the clothes on his back and his coin (which was found in a 4 foot pile of mud). When he returned the coin to me it was VERY emotional and he personally spoke to the next missionary who carried it into the field to let him know what it meant to him.
When the missionaries return and give the coin back, they are then presented with a different coin to keep for life that serves as a memento of the wonderful service they rendered on behalf of The Lord and his church. It is a very emotional experience as these missionaries give the coin back that they carried and are presented with one that will always remind them of the service they gave.
