Please support the non-profit Jewish-American Hall of Fame
by ordering our limited edition medals

The non-profit Jewish-American Hall of Fame supports its award-winning web site and other educational projects through the sale of limited edition art medals created by outstanding sculptors. Almost all of the medals are uniquely shaped rounded trapezoidal shape, over 2” diameter (weighing about 2 1/2 oz.). The Haym Salomon and Columbus medals are round, 2 ¼” diameter (weighing about 3 1/2 oz.).  In addition, two special issues are listed -- commemorating Ruth Bader Ginsburg (round, 1 ½” diameter, 1 oz. pure silver) and 350 Years of Jewish Life in America (round, 3” diameter, 8 oz.). All medals (except 1993 Ginsburg) are individually serial numbered on the edge. 

These medals are made in very limited editions, many under 100 pieces and averaging just a few hundred pieces; most are sold out and many others are nearly sold out. The following price list indicates which medals are still available. You can support our educational programs by ordering medals using PayPal (send to directorjahf@yahoo.com), or by calling (818) 225-1348 and charging to Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. If you prefer, mail a check or money order to the non-profit Jewish-American Hall of Fame, c/o Mel Wacks, 5189 Jeffdale Ave., Woodland Hills, CA 91364. Please add $5 per order for shipping and insurance within USA. (Contact us for costs to ship outside of USA.)
