Full Answer

HikeAmerica is an online retailer specializing in hiking medallions and staves. The company crafts and imports all of its stock and carries an extensive line of medallions that includes several scene depictions for each national park. Eight individual pieces are available for Yosemite alone. As of 2015, each medallion costs about $4.

eParks.com is the official online retailer of the American National Park Service. While its catalog is not as extensive as HikeAmerica's, it offers a selection of top-selling hiking medallions from each of its stores, including the Buffalo National River medallion, a replica 1936 USGS Mammoth Cave medallion and the Shiloh National Military Park medallion. Customers can order any products that are not available on the website through customer service.

Amazon.com offers hiking medallions designed by L.W. Bristol Classics, a leading manufacturer of hiking medallions, pins and patches. As of 2015, pieces sold on Amazon.com cost about 50 percent more than those from similar retailers. However, Amazon.com is the sole supplier of products directly from this manufacturer. Free two-day shipping is available for Amazon Prime members.
