THE AYN RAND MEDALS The artist who created the Ayn Rand Portrait Bust that graces the Ayn Rand Institute's California Headquarters is making available a limited edition of 1 oz. medals based on her original relief sculpture of Ayn Rand.
"We've received the coins. They are beautiful. Congratulations!" -- John Allison, North Carolina
"We think it's beautiful, a one-of-a-kind work of art. And of course it has special meaning to me as a staunch sound-money advocate. As you know, Ayn Rand herself was a strong advocate of gold. She made me realize that a money freely chosen by the market was the only rational and moral form of money. So your project is brilliant -- in execution, in aesthetic value, in its moral significance, and in its personal meaning to me. I just feel fortunate that I was able to purchase them!" -- Jim Brown, California
"I just wanted to say thank you. I received my medal yesterday and it surpassed my great expectations. It is so beautiful! I can't tell you how much I appreciate being able to look at and hold your work in my hand. I cannot tell you how often I stop to admire the medal; it's in a spot I pass several times every day, yet sometimes it catches me off-guard and I see it as if for the first time. It is an arresting piece! Again, thank you!" -- Chey Miller, New York "My beautiful Ayn Rand medallion arrived right on schedule -- an inspired gift from my niece! It is in a place of honor on my office desk where the bright, bold profile of Miss Rand reminds me of the benevolent universe made possible by reason, purpose and self-esteem. Your stunning rendition of the Manhattan skyline, framed in the rays of the sun above and the reflection of the buildings in the water below, concretizes those principles brilliantly. It is a joy to literally hold a concrete example of them in my hand. Miss Rand identified those primary values and brought them to life in her novels, you have brought them to life in your work. Thank you so very much." -- Catherine Dickerson, California
“I received my order today, and I’m very pleased with it. The medal is beautiful, and I couldn’t be happier with it. … Congratulations for your beautiful art, and thank you again for making it.” -- Agustina Vergara Cid, Argentina "Your Ayn Rand coin arrived. In perfect condition. And beautiful. Wonderful creation Sandra." -- Lewis Carter, California
"Gold is a symbol of justice to Ragnar Danneskjold. The gold medal that you crafted with the profile of Ayn Rand serves for me as a reminder of that concept and of the woman who helped me to understand its importance. Thank you so much for creating the Ayn Rand Gold Medal. It's gorgeous!" -- Ginger Clark, California
