This medal was struck in 1905 at the new Denver Mint to test the new machinery and possibly new dies for a $20 gold piece. It was handed out as a souvenir at the official opening ceremonies. Obverse DENVER above and 1905 below, bank reverse with a beaded border. Struck in Bronze and graded NGC MS 61 BN, the silver streak in the center of obverse is not a scratch, it is a piece of metal that was on the planchet before it was struck and is now embedded into the medal. Pretty cool!
