Rick Harrison Mints “The Old Man” for a Special Pawn Star Birthday
March 9, 2012 by VegasNews.com
Rick Harrison, of HISTORY’s “Pawn Stars,” planned early for “The Old Man’s” birthday this year. For a man who has nearly everything, Harrison had to get creative when coming up with a special present to commemorate his Dad’s 71st birthday (Pictured above: Richard “Old Man” Harrison with Randy Travis (to his right), grandson Corey and son Rick Harrison – Photo credit: Gold & Silver Pawn Shop).
Being the savvy collector that Harrison is, he and the Gold & Silver Pawn staff came up with the idea of creating a silver medallion embossed with “The Old Man’s” face, now available for purchase exclusively at the pawn shop.
This special piece was presented to “The Old Man” Friday, March 2, in a special celebration at the pawn shop. Family, staff and fans were all in attendance as Harrison presented the handcrafted medallion to his Dad. Afterwards, everyone was able to enjoy a marble cake with buttercream frosting endorsed with a picture of “The Old Man.”
Also in attendance was country superstar Randy Travis and his entourage, who surprised everyone with a special appearance for “The Old Man.” Travis gave the crooner a special edition guitar that he signed for him while at the shop signing, “Great to meet you. God Bless.”
The medallion was commissioned with Sunshine Minting, Inc. based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and struck at their operation in Henderson, Nevada. Sunshine Minting is the world’s largest manufacturer of silver and gold for bullion and their products can be found at the Pawn Shop. The first mintage of this medallion will be strictly limited to 1,000 pieces and will only be sold at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, priced at $60 each.
