Project Destiny: Elite Medals

As I was writing up my 15+ days of releases I started tinkering with things I thought I would like to see but still hadn't really seen anyone do. I had already done the work on the Age of Triumph and the record book coins/medallions. But then I realized I wanted to fill up my board I was etching to maximize the space I had available.

I started thinking of the various things I hadn't seen. I realized there is a lot of things I could do. I had always loved the designs on the various Detinsy medals, they had a very military feel to them but the art work on them was great. I wanted to add a little bit more to my 'look at what we have accomplished' especially with the announcement of Destiny 2.

I started looking over the various medals and with over a hundred to choose from I had to narrow it down. So I decided what better place to start than at the top. I collected the various art work from the top tier yellow/gold medals they have. The hardest ones to get. I thought why not give all those top tier guardians a way to show off what they have accomplished even outside of the Destiny universe.

After the Etching was done and the medals were cleaned up I molded them. I intended to cold cast them in brass as I thought it gave them a very beautiful metal finish for these awesome little pins.

After I cast them I gave them a quick aging to make the brass stand out more in contrast. I think the results were outstanding. Don't take my word for it judge for yourself.


I wanted them to be small but big enough to see the details of each, so they are about the size of a quarter. That way if you want to sport the whole set it could be done without taking up to much room.

If you'd like to have your very own Elite Medals you can head over to my Etsy Store and pick one  or the entire set.
