CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- When West Virginia celebrated its 150th birthday in June, the state issued 1,863 coins to commemorate the occasion.
All of the coins sold out online in less than 12 hours.
For anyone who wanted to get their hands on one of the coins but missed out, a Princeton-based company is offering another opportunity.
The Bronze Look, a precious metals and collectible company, has announced plans to release its own limited edition sesquicentennial coin.
The coin, which features numerous official state symbols, will be made from 99.9 percent pure silver and can be reserved at the pre-release price of $60.
The coin will be housed in a leatherette case, encased in plastic and will come with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Like the state's coin, The Bronze Look plans to limit its release to just 1,863 coins.
The coin's front shows the figure of a woman traveling across the world spreading the word about the state's sesquicentennial.
The reverse side will feature a rhododendron, a black bear and the state's motto, "Montani Semper Liberi."
The coin was designed by The Bronze Look's in-house graphics team and will be minted by Northwest Territorial Mint.
Northwest Territorial Mint, manufacturers of the Bronze Star and other decorations for the United States military, also minted the state's sesquicentennial coin.
