The owners of Alaska Mint are raising money for the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
The co-owners of the small, family-run business have designed 1 oz. medallions featuring a map of the East Coast along with the eye of the storm.
The medals also read "Helping Those Affected Superstorm Sandy October 2012."
Michele Robuck, a co-owner of the store said on Friday the business will donate 50 percent of every coin sold to The American Red Cross. "When we saw what was happening and saw that it was escalating to be even worse and worse than they could imagine, we decided well what can we do on our part to help," she said.
The Superstorm medallions sell for $24.99 for bronze, $109.99 for silver, and $134.99 for silver medals highlighted with 24k gold.
