Krause Publications Medals and Ingots : A Trial Check List
By Fred J Borgmann

True to it's numismatic origins Krause Publications issued a large number of medals over the years. This listing is an attempt to create a check list of these very collectible medals. Tokens, personal medals and other souvenirs have been left out of this listing though some may still be found here. Errors will certainly be found, as in all my work. Special thanks to Clifford Mishler for without his help to Tom Connery's earlier pioneering effort in this field, this listing would not be nearly as complete as it is now. Note: all silver ingots and medals are 1 oz of .999 silver but many do not carry a silver fineness statement. Some of the medals exist in gold and hopefully still exist. Some medals were given to employees or other specialized groups and some were sold at various shows and conventions. Mintages are the original numbers produced. Some are adjusted to reflect the medals that were re-melted.

Abbreviations; alum : aluminum, ANA: American Numismatic Association, B: bronze, CN: copper nickel, ESOP: Employee Stock Ownership Plan, KP: Krause Publications, S : silver, wF: with fineness statement, NOW: Numismatists Of Wisconsin, NN: Numismatic News, pcs: pieces, yrs: years, " / " separates obverse description from the reverse.
