The Alaska Mint is the northernmost mint in the United States. They offer a wide variety of gold products, including jewelry, knives, and other gifts. Since 1990, the Alaska Mint has also minted their own custom gold and silver rounds. The artwork on these medallions often features local Alaskan designs, making these rounds highly collectible.

They are produced in very small numbers each year, and are prized by local buyers. Their most unique offering, however, is raw gold nuggets from gold veins throughout the state. The Alaska Mint is considered to be a local fixture; located in downtown Anchorage, it is the starting point of the famed Iditarod Sled Dog Race.
