Railroads produced medallions to commemorate important events or accomplishment. Medallions are usually cast from brass, copper, bronze or similar medals and are distinguished by the fact that they have illustration or inscription on both sides of the item. Medallions are generally about the size of large coins and usually commemorate a railroad’s 50, 75, 100, or similar year anniversary of operation. In online pictures these medallions can look like paperweights, but paperweights are generally larger, heavier and only decorated on a single side. Medallions are relatively uncommon, but prices vary greatly from under $50 to the hundreds.
