The Sulphur Centennial Commemorative Coin is now available for purchase. According to Mayor Chris Duncan, the coin's first run of 300 is complete and the coins are on sale now at City Hall for $20 each.
The antique nickel coin, featuring a likeness of sulphur mining pioneer Herman Frasch on one side and the City of Sulphur logo on the other, measures 2 1/2 inches in diameter and a quarter of inch in thickness.
Coins numbered 1-10 are being held in reserve and will be auctioned off at a date to be announced. The remaining numbered coins are available but no requests for specific issue numbers will be entertained.
"We are selling the coins on a first-come first-served basis," Duncan told the Southwest Daily News.
