ANA Honors Ron Landis With Medallic Sculpture Award

   The American Numismatic Association (ANA) confers its 2003 Numismatic Art Award for Excellence in Medallic Sculpture in recognition of contributions to numismatic art.

   This year's recipient is Ron Landis of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. With partner Joe Rust, he founded the Gallery Mint Museum in 1992 with the intention of building a working museum that demonstrates the evolution of coin-making technology, from Ancient Greece through the Industrial Revolution. As the Museum's chief engraver and vice president, Landis currently specializes in the reproduction of rare, early U.S. coin types using traditional methods. He also is well-known in the field for creating hand-engraved coins known as "hobo nickels."

   Landis is a member of the American Medallic Sculpture Association, Token and Medal Society, Early American Coppers, Original Hobo Nickel Society and Arkansas Numismatic Society. He also has served as an instructor in the ANA Summer Seminar's "Art of Engraving" class.

   Says Thomas D. Rogers Sr., former U.S. Mint engraver and 2000 winner of this prestigious award, "Through his re-creations of American coinage and production processes, Ron Landis has created a portal to the past. He has brought to the public a hands-on explanation of how our early coinage was made. With his humorous, 'it's-in-there-somewhere' style, he has revitalized interest in hobo-nickel carving," Rogers adds. "Ron is a hard-working, honest and sincere artist and engraver, as well as a teacher."

   Landis' artistic work and dedication to his craft have made him well-deserving of this award. Therefore, in appreciation of his commitment to excellence in medallic sculpture, the American Numismatic Association presents an engraved medal, designed by the late Gilroy Roberts, to Ron Landis and expresses the sincere appreciation of its members.
Illustrations are some of Ron's favorite creations (not part of ANA's release.)

  • A 1796 HalfCent Quartet

  •    I don't have a great deal to tell you about these four great recreations other than they make a really great display set. It speaks volumes about Ron Landis' prolific talent and production when such a wonderful set of recreations brings no specific comments to mind. If I had been responsible for creating any one of these pieces it would have been definitely remarkable... a high point in my simple life ...but when Ron does it I find it pretty standard/unremarkable. I reckon it is just that these pieces pale in comparison to some of Ron's more superlative creations. Sorry about that Ron... no disrespect intended! Perhaps you have just set the bar so high that even you have to struggle to get over it sometimes.
       The rarest piece in this quartet is Ron's first attempt at a NoPole HalfCent that TheGuys handed out at the ANA convention in Portland in 1998. I want to thank Cliff for taking the time to make scans from his collection to share with us. EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

    The King's Coin Hammer 1991 38.5mm 1.5oz Medal
    "Saint George Slaying The Dragon"
  • The King's Coin Hammer Copper Medals

  •    If you think finding the pewter tokens that are scattered to the winds at coin conventions is difficult then you haven't looked for numismatic specimens that were passed out to non-numismatic folks like those who attend Renaissance Festivals. Ron tells me he and Joe regularly struck copper medals on the King's Coin Hammer but those specimens are almost impossible to find today. He told me that the occasional "numismatic type" person who came to view medals being struck normally purchased silver medals. So... you are more likely to find these exceptionally rare medals in silver than in copper. EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

    GENUINE 1850 Baldwin & Co. $10 Gold
  • Still Watching For The Horseman

  • Enlargements available on both WWW and ScrapBook CD-ROM    Ron spent a great deal of effort in 2002 recreating the Horseman type 1850 Baldwin $10 California gold issue shown above. Here we are past the halfway mark in 2003 and Ron's recreation... shown here on the right ...still hasn't appeared in hyperspace anyplace that I can discover. The firm that ran a Coin World advertisement on Ron's recreation in 2002 doesn't even mention it on their website. I have yet to learn anything germane to this issue; mintage, price, etcetera.
       We have visited this subject twice already, in Link:Keep Your Eyes Open! and in Link:Our First Glimpse Of The Horseman. If anyone can give us any specifics on this wonderful recreation... PLEASE let me know!

    Quite Simply Over The Top!
       I have talked this carving over with Dave and he pointed out that our clown is left-handed. We have decided that this is an "old left-handed four string" banjo which I did find on the internet. Cliff Kraft... Tuesday, August 05, 2003 4:59PM

    Tom Always Was Larger Than Life
       eBay item 3039704374 (Aug-10-03 17:56:22PDT) - HOBO NICKEL LEE's BO's "TOM". Say hello to "TOM" (L-115). This gentleman was not "Tom" when he was started, but more and more, he became "Tom." To me he should be in Dallas coaching football, and I hope there are a few people in Dallas who think so also. The "Football Tom" always had a nice hat "size 7 1/2" and a nice sport coat. Our "Tom" is no different, and after "Football Tom" got the "green weenie" in Dallas, only our "Tom" and his super 1938 host are available, and can be contacted right here. Clifford L. Kraft... Aug-05-03 17:56:22 PDT
       I really shouldn't be showing all y'all Cliffy's Tom here because I'd like to offer him a retirement contract to come here to the Kansa Territories and whip my recruits from Squaw Lake, and other points North, into shape. I have a number of real Bears that need his firm hand. "LOREN" tells me quite emphatically... now that his hair has all grown back, it came back in very nicely thank you ...that he will happily maul anyone that does anything to foul up his opportunity to show that he has the "right stuff" under Tom's tutelage. He has dreamed of this all his life so I'd take him seriously folks!
       Reckon I'll just have to take my chances in the tidal pool with all the rest of the eBay sharks. Tom's hat and coat make this carving superlative... not to detract from the rest of Tom's good features which are too numerous to go into here. Tom gets really embarassed... and a bit cranky ...if folks sing his praises too loudly, or off key! Great work Cliff! EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

    A Landis Teddy Bear Token


  • Back To Simpler More Secure Times

  •    I should probably backtrack and add this 2003 ANA Summer Seminar "Teddy Bear" token to Link:ScrapBook Page62 with all the other MiniMint tokens struck this year. I figure that if I start doing such backtracks... I'd always be adding new material to old ScrapBook pages where most folks would miss them since they had already visited the older material and are unlikely to go back over it.
       Mike Ellis tells me that this "Teddy Bear" token is a Ron Landis creation and that it was very popular at the Summer Seminar. Obviously this reflects Ron in a playful mood and that is a good thing. We all need those moments to lighten our load while traveling through this life. Teddy bears take us back to simpler more secure times in our lives when we didn't have any idea that people were dying to defend our security. God Bless the parents and families of our young men and women who give their lives around the world so we can love our own families as they grow. EMail:Verne R. Walrafen

The recessed field (with Liberty removed) is nice, but is not flat." Gail: "Beautifully carved nickel. Nice details. Some spots on coin. The carving, while beautifully done, is simple in detail.

  • After Getting The Microscope

  •    The two half dollars with the straighter hair are from my first and second dies. The third die is a total re-do starting with new master dies. I did this after getting the microscope. I don't know the order of the first two "straight hair" varieties. Ron Landis... Monday, August 04, 2003 11:30AM
       I have examined the few 1794 half dollar pieces in my collection and I can't make a definitive statement about the creation order of the first and second obverse dies. I do know that I received my number one very shortly after they were first offered and my number two came much later at a coin show... I think from someone who bought his early too. The first die has a few misjudged placements not evident in the second die... which could imply a learning chronology ...but that is all that I can contribute at this point. Cliff Bolling...

    Royals ...or... Presentation Pieces
       While building the Link: Fleur De Coin - 'Flower Of The Die' SBsubject I was reminded of the few virtually perfect Mexican/Spanish COB specimens that I thought I recalled being called Royals. When I asked my friend Glenn in Spain he replied:
       They are called "royals" or "presentation pieces" if referring to old pieces, and usually just some degree of "uncirculated" if a modern piece. In Spain, a modern "proof" is usually called a "proof." Glenn Murray... Friday, August 01, 2003 12:37PM
       When I used AltaVista's "Babel Fish Translation" on-line tool it gave me really confusing results... it couldn't even get back to the original English phrase I had given it ...which was Not Good! I sent my translation efforts (shown above) to Glenn and he amplified further:
       I see what you mean... "reales" is a monetary denomination, "huelga" is a strike... but only the kind workers do with pickets in front of their factories, and "espec韒enes" is what you give the Doctor in the little bottle during a medical check-up.
       You could call them "pruebas" or "ensayos" which are test strikes... which is what they really were, though not what they were supposed to be. These coins, sent every year from the colonial mints to the Madrid Mint in Spain (the King), were supposed to be random pieces drawn blindfolded from a large bin... after having mixed up the coins as per very specific instructions. Its purpose was to prove to the King that production was up to par... not that they knew how to make artistically perfect pieces when they wanted to. Glenn Murray... August 02, 2003 5:44AM

  • Stanton Token Hot Struck In Silver

  •    This is the second of these rare pattern specimens I have seen to date hot stuck in silver. I call this reverse die Ron's pattern die because it was redone for some reason before the production runs of J.T.'s tokens. Ron once told me that it is not a good idea to hot strike silver with dies designed for cold striking. If memory serves... he said that the using the dies in this manner causes scale to form on their surfaces. Of course this is damaging to the dies and would drastically shorten their working lives.
       I think I know how Ron got such good judgment. I suspect he got it from going through a lot of bad experiences which all resulted from a lot of bad judgment. At least that is where I got all my good judgment!
       You can see a scan of the other hot struck silver Stanton token here: Link: Property of GMM MintMaster. We have visited the subject of Stanton tokens in two other previous SBsubjects: Link: Elect J.T.Stanton For ANA In 1995 and Link: The Landis Factor. These tokens are among my favorite Landis creations. You already know how much I appreciate his medals and tokens. Finally the folks at the ANA have acknowledged his considerable talents. Congratulations Ron! EMail:Verne R. Walrafen
