Medalcraft Mint Designs and Produces Ceremonial Maces With a Classic Touch

"Ceremonial maces date back to the Middle Ages and originally were used as weapons," explains Jerry Moran, owner and chief executive officer of Medalcraft Mint. "Today, these beautiful pieces symbolize an institution's commitment to excellence with a nod toward tradition and dignity."
Ceremonial Maces Require Exquisite Craftsmanship
