BECC Medals

Important Note: This is not a public sale. BECC medals are normally sold to eligible Boeing persons by private sale. Please read "BECC Medals Information" below.

The Boeing Employees' Coin Club has issued distinctive medals featuring a Boeing product or products most years since the 50th anniversary of The Boeing Company in 1966. These medals are issued in silver, pewter, and bronze (and beginning in 2012, copper), with a proof-like (mirror-like) finish, and are widely collected by BECC members, Boeing employees and retirees, and other persons interested in aviation and coin club memorabilia. Since the BECC is a non-profit organization, the medal prices are reasonable, although higher in recent years due to higher silver prices and higher production expenses.

Note: The 2012 copper medals did not have a proof-like finish, however all other medals including the 2013 to date medals do have this popular feature that most collectors desire. Special "antique" finish medals have been made for club awards, but are not available as part of the normal sales process. More information about recent special-issue medals is available in the Table of BECC medals (designs and mintages), and some information was also included in the PNNA's first quarter editions of The Nor'wester, which was available at the annual BECC coin shows in 2018-2020.

Medal Availability

Important Note: This information is not guaranteed and may not be up-to-date. Please contact the medals chairman or medals sales coordinator for more information, or inquire at becc.medals@gmail.com.

All past BECC medals are SOLD OUT (from the club), except for a limited number of  2021 and 2022-dated medals.

Current medals are available to club members and Boeing persons via the official order form, which is published in the club newsletter in the summer-fall of each year, or could be obtained from the medal sales coordinator.

2023 medals feature KC-46A

December 2022 update: Medals will be available in the very near future as I try to assemble three-piece set holders and put orders together. See you at the December meeting!!

October-November 2022 update: There has been a strong response to this yearís medals as the orders keep coming in. The medals are in the process of being struck. Pewter medals are in the process of being polished. We are hopeful that the medals will be available at the November meeting. Instead of going with a generic holder we approached Capital Plastics for custom holders again and are waiting for the quote and delivery. If things are favorable, we will go with the custom black holders.

September 2022 update: The 2023 KC-46 Refueling medal design will have its entire production run of silver medals at the standard one ounce. The club ordered enough material for 200 silver, and 100 each of pewter, bronze and copper, one ounce medals. The BECC has cut a check to the mint to purchase the needed silver. The price of silver was locked at $21.50. Silver medals will cost $40. There were minor increases in the price of bronze, pewter and copper medals due to increases in minting costs.

June 2022 update: Last year, supply chain issues and silver demand had a huge impact on our medals order. I was hoping that the "supply chain issues" were all going to be resolved for this yearís medal. The demand for silver is still high. Even though the price has dropped some, itís not a lot compared to last year. I donít know if all the foundries are back up and running or not. But after having BEX, the company that makes our medal, checking around with all the foundries I have some bad news Ö The 2023 KC-46 medal design will have its entire production run of silver medals at the standard one ounce. The 1.5 ounce planchet is non-standard and the demand for the standard one ounce is so high that no foundry will stop to convert their process for our limited run of planchets. So 2023 will have a one-ounce silver medal, which beats no silver medal at all.

May 2022 update: Boeing Licensing and Marketing has approved the design on the clubís 2023 medal. Two planes meant two different ďgroupsĒ had to approve the design. Yes, there were changes that had to be made, but the good news is they provided a similar photo except the picture was taken from the other side of the plane. Not that they were really nitpicky, but it turns out the photo I was given by Boeing that I based the design off of was actually an artist concept of the plane before final design and there were subtle differences. Some tweaking was done and they liked how it turned out so it didnít take too long the second time around for the collective okays and approval. A deposit for this medal has been mailed to the mint.

March/April 2022 update: Work has begun on the clubís 2023 medal!! The current 2023 design is ready to go for Boeing approval Ė hoping this goes smoothly as they supplied the picture the main design is based on.The 2023 design is going to depict a KC-46A refueling a F-15E fighter jet with another F-15E in the view.

All updates by medals chairman Tony K., as appearing in the club's newsletter.

May 2022 update: The remaining 2021 club medals were sold in April along with the 2022 copper and Ďblemished' burnished (antiqued) coppers. There are still some 2022 copper medals for sale. Those can be ordered by mail (see the May newsletter) or bought at the next club meeting on May 25th until medals are sold out. The regular 2022 medals are almost sold out. Just a few more silvers left, close to 10.

April 2022 update: The 2022 medals are almost sold out. Got a couple new orders in that Iíll be hand delivering.

February 2022 update: Iím happy to say that the second installment of medals just arrived, so I can start putting the 3-piece sets together and getting the rest of the medals mailed out. We now have bronze and pewter medals in as well as the limited number of copper medals. The supply chain issue has been a hassle but Iím looking forward to getting the medals out and having that done so I can work on the 2023 design, which is a mid-air refueling with the KC46 and a fighter jet. Still looking at different layout options but hope to have a couple of drafts for next month's medal report.

January 2022 update: Letters went out in the mail to the normal customers that havenít order yet. We did get some of the silver medals in the week of Christmas. Since we have a number of people that use the silver medals as Christmas gifts, all the out-of-town silver medal orders only went out in the mail. Some of the local silver medals were hand-delivered. The balance of the silver medals along with the bronze and pewter are now scheduled to arrive sometime in January. I will strive to get those out as soon as possible after they arrive.

October-December 2021 updates: There have been further delays in getting the blanks needed for different orders, ours included. The mint is going to start striking the medals on Dec. 13, 2021. I will make every effort to get them out and even hand deliver if needed (locally) to get the medals that are Christmas gifts to you so they can find their usual place in the stockings or under the tree. The non-Christmas ones that are to be hand-delivered will be available at the coin show. We have sold over 50% of the medals ordered from BEX.

August-September 2021 updates: At the July board meeting, we discussed the pricing for the silver medal and it was agreed and voted that the silver medal would be priced at $60 to cover the price difference of the 1.5 ounces of silver from $15 to $26 an ounce. The foundry that our mint uses has been overloaded with demand and with our unique 1.5 ounce planchets; they are only now in the process of getting ready to produce them. We are scheduled to receive our 2022 medals in September. I have holders in hand so will be ready to put sets together when the medals arrive. I donít expect to be able to ship medals out until October 2021.

June-July 2021 updates: The order for the 2022 767-300 Freighter medals has been placed with our minter. We have the silver covered and the minter is completing the die to strike the medals. We need to discuss the pricing for the medals as the silver was about $10 more per ounce than last year. Iím thinking the silver medal will be somewhere between $60-$65 for the 2022 medals. No mirror base holders will be offered for the 2022 medals as I still havenít found a source to make those custom holders.

April-May 2021 updates: The 2022 767-300 Freighter design is approved and we have the silver price locked from the refinery. Bex will let us know when they get the 1.5 ounce silver planchets for our medals. The club was also getting caught up with prior orders before offering the 2022 medals.
