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 2013-2016 medals do have this popular feature that most collectors desire.

September 2016 update: The order form for the 2017 medals is now available and part of the September club newsletter. There is no longer a copper medal offered on the order form. At one of the board meetings this summer it was decided to drop the copper from the standard issue. The medal was going to be dropped completely, but a few folks still wanted to see it made available so a much lower mintage was decided and the medals would be offered at a premium on a first come first serve basis. Further discussion on how that would be handled at the September board meeting had some folks wondering if we could really be fair about it. In the end, it was decided that 20 copper medals would be minted and auctioned off at club meetings. So it you normally donít attend a club meeting, and want one, you can find a proxy to bid on one for you. The other thing is that there were roughly 40 folks who ordered 4 piece sets and we couldnít just sell the medal to only them. That led to the auction option. So the club is now back to the standard 3 piece medal sets. The mintages for the 2017 medals are 225 silver, 110 bronze and 110 pewters. With the reduced mintages we will probably sell out across the board as we try to find out what is the actual demand for the medals. Even though we sold out of silvers for 2016 and are close on the other medals, we still hold a higher than normal inventory of medals for 2014 and 2015 that the club still has for sale. Contact the medals chairman for details.

February 2017 update: The 2017 silver medals are sold out, with bronze at 32 and pewters at 34 (until the next order comes in and is processed).

2016 medals commemorate Boeing's 100th Anniversary!

BECC 2016 gold medal

BECC 2016 Medals commemorate Boeing's 100th Anniversary! As shown in the artwork at left, the BECC's 2016 medal commemorates the 100th anniversary of The Boeing Company, featuring the B&W Model 1 from 1916 and a modern 737 Max, scheduled for first flight in 2016. As noted before, "The 2016 medal design is the most important design that most of us in the club have ever been involved with. Think about it this way - We have waited 100 years to design and mint this medal!! There are only 24 Fortune 500 companies that have been around that long. For those reasons we need to make sure this is our best medal ever. Your 100th birthday only comes around once." Club members were asked to submit a creative design to Tony Kalt before the March meeting. At the April 2015 meeting, Tony K. led a 2016 medal discussion, with several designs provided by Doug Marsden, artist of BECC medals for several years. Members present voted for designs featuring the B&W and 737 MAX on the obverse. The artist refined the chosen designs and lettering, and the artwork first appeared in the club's June newsletter. Medals were first available to club members and other Boeing personnel in the fall of 2015. Note: reverse of the 2016 medal is the same as the 2014 BECC medal reverse. November update (Tony Kalt): The bronze, silver, pewter and copper medals have arrived and I have been delivering them to members at the banquet. In addition, the gold medal order has been placed with the mint. The gold price was locked in at $1,200. The gold medals will be available later. We now have 105 silver, 88 pewter, 88 bronze and 99 copper medals in inventory. Please donít forget to order your medals. An order form was in the newsletter. December/January update (Tony Kalt): At the December general membership meeting, it was reported that the BECC 2016 silver medals (300 minted) have sold out, with 29 pewter, 43 bronze and 75 copper medals remaining. The gold medals previously ordered are now available (as of February) - see the photo! April update (Tony Kalt): Medal sales for 2016 are winding down with ZERO silvers remaining, 22 pewter, 30 bronze and 39 coppers remaining. Twenty-six gold medals have arrived and the estimated arrival date for the remaining 11 was not reported. There were discussions on three-year consecutive designs or stand-alone designs. Tony took an action to contact existing medal buyers for their input. Design concepts are being accepted from members.

2015 medals feature Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey

As reported in May 2014, "The Medals Committee has secured approval from Bell and Boeing corporate for the 2015 Boeing Medal. To the left is the approved representation for the 2015 medal design. Thanks to the medals committee for all the hard work. The V-22 first flew in 1989, and began flight testing and design alterations. The complexity and difficulties of being the first tilt rotor intended for military service in the world led to many years of development. The United States Marine Corps began crew training for the Osprey in 2000, and fielded it in 2007." Update (Aug. 2014): The medals committee reviewed with the BECC executive board the cost of producing the medals and decided to leave the prices the same as last year. The Board authorized medals mintages at the Golden State Mint. Artwork © 2014 The Boeing Company and BECC. All Rights Reserved. Note: reverse of 2015 medals is the same as the 2013 BECC 50th anniversary reverse. Update: A limited number of medals are still available; email becc.medals@gmail.com for more information.
