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 will be available in 2019, including in the PNNA's first quarter edition of The Nor'wester, which was available at the annual BECC coin show.

At the May 2018 meeting, Tom presented important statistics on World War II P-51 Mustangs & Aces. Craig made a motion that the 2019 club medals depict a P-51 Mustang, which was accepted.

July update: Tony has ordered 2019 BECC Medals, featuring a “killer” P-51 mustang. 200 silver, 100 bronze, 100 pewter and 25 copper.

September update: The 2019 medals are due to ship from the mint. Once the package contents have been confirmed, we will start shipping the medal orders that do not contain the custom holders (i.e. 3 piece holder/set and mirror base holders).

October update: The 2019 medals are in and looking good. Sales are doing well with more than 70% sold. Last month I inadvertently said we had 115 bronze and pewters minted. That was wrong - we only had 100 minted. So the correct minted quantities are Silver (225), Bronze (100) and Pewter (100), with quantities currently remaining of 31 silver, 27 bronze, and 31 pewter.

I am currently looking for a new source/supplier for the custom medal (and awards) holders. At this rate I don’t expect to have the awards for the chair positions that we normally hand out. As soon as we can get the holders I will get those distributed. I will have the antique bronze medal at the banquet so people can view it. Single medals and orders that do not have custom holders will be going out in the mail this week. As soon as I have the custom holders, I’ll start mailing the 3 piece holder sets.

November/December update: It’s official – we sold out of the silver medals. There are currently 17 bronze and 22 pewter medals left for the 2019 P-51 Mustang. This year the custom holders have been a hassle to get, but we have a supplier now making the holders. My goal is to have them all mailed out in time for Christmas. (Reported by Tony K.)

February (2019) update: It’s official – we sold out of the silver medals. There are currently 14 bronze and 20 pewter left for the 2019 P-51 Mustang. (Reported by Tony K.)

May (2019) update: I’d like to say I have some good news in regards to the custom holders but I don’t. The last correspondence with the supplier is that they have new material ordered and hope to be starting the holders in the coming week.

After talking with some of the people waiting on the holders, the general thought is to go and put the medals in the standard air-tite style holder and mail the medals out. Then when we finally get the custom holders, those will be mailed out to each person to complete the order.

It could be a week or another month for the custom holders, but you have waited long enough for the medals. As soon as the holders are made for the 2019 medals, the work for the 2020 medals will start, so when (in theory) we get the 2020 medals, I’ll already have the holders, so there shouldn’t be a delay like this year.

2018 medals feature 737 10,000 Delivered

April/May 2017 update: Progress is being made on the 2018 medal design to commemorate the 10,000th delivery of the 737. At the March club meeting, we reviewed 8 different design and then down-selected to two designs. Upon further discussion, the club decided to vote on which plane graphic they preferred and that the wording option would be voted on at the April meeting with a selection of different text options for the medal choices. The airplane design shown won the club’s approval. More style (text) options will be created and made available at the April club meeting for voting. Tony K. presented 10 different options for the 2018 medal design with a variety of options showing different text positioning. After two rounds of voting, the design for the obverse was decided, and will be sent to Boeing Licensing for approval.

June/July 2017 update: The design has been approved by Boeing Licensing and BEX is working on the getting the die made to produce the medals. BEX has been informed of the club’s decision to stay with the proof-like pewter medal, so the price of the pewter medal will increase to cover the additional minting cost. The cost of the die went up an additional $50 as well. The board reviewed the pricing of the medals and agreed with the following prices for the single medals: Silver ($45), Bronze ($13) and Pewter ($16). The price of the three-price set will remain at $90. See the 2018 medals order form in the newsletter for the other pricing. It was also shared at the board meeting that BEX will starting striking the medals and we should have them by the end of the July. Holders have been ordered based on 2017 sales and should be ready close to the same time.

September 2017 update: Current status of the 2018 737 10,000th delivered medals for Sept. has the inventory at 148 silvers, 74 bronze, and 81 pewters remaining. The current sales have been for the folks receiving the newsletter and/or the email order form. The folks that get the order form by mail received their order forms last week. Once those orders come in, we should be close to selling out all of the silvers. The 2018 medals are also being shown at the Boeing Family days. If you recall, we auction off 3 copper medals at each club meeting, while I forgot to bring the 3 for the August meeting. The board decided that that those 3 would be auctioned off at the November meeting and that we would not be auctioning off 6 at the September meeting. Still to be auctioned off is the pair of 2017 747-8 pewters proof-like (mintage 110) and the brush finish sample (mintage 1) in a custom holder. That set will be auctioned off either at the November or December general meeting. A picture of the set will be posted in the newsletter giving the auction notice.

November 2017 update: We have less than 40 silver, 50 bronze and pewter medals left. The club was asked to write a article for the PNNA newsletter (The Nor'wester) for first quarter 2018 in time for our coin show. Tony will work on that article.

Feb.-Mar. 2018 update: Quantities of 2018 medals remaining are: silver 35, bronze 46, pewter 46 and copper 23. The coppers are being auctioned off at the rate of 3 per meeting. 2 were given away at the banquet.
