Medals from KOMSCO are unique among bullion products available to investors. While coins such as the Libertad of the Mexican Mint and Gold Krugerrand of the South African Mint have no face value marked, the coins are legal tender. KOMSCO issues a unique “value” to its medals known as “Clay.” The use of the term clay refers to the value of the land itself, with 1 Clay representing the smallest unit of measure. It is a unique means of assigning value to a silver bullion specimen.
