"The Mighty Tower"


The fourth annual Golden Gate Bridge collectible ornament, The Mighty Tower, highlights one of the two 746-foot high towers, the highest ever built for a suspension span when the Bridge opened in 1937. Painted distinctive International Orange, the towers rise above the Golden Gate Strait to a height of a 65-story building and contrast beautifully with the greens, browns and blues of the span’s natural setting and surroundings. The structure’s elegant, understated lines accent and brilliantly reflect the sun’s light.

Matchless in its art deco splendor, the Golden Gate Bridge is unrivaled as a symbol of grace and magnificence. With its tremendous towers, sweeping cables and great span, the Bridge is a sensory beauty featuring color, sound and light.

The ornament is handmade and manufactured by American artisans, featuring a stunning close-up of the massive Golden Gate Bridge north tower, and is 2 ¾" x 3 ½", solid brass and finished in 24k gold. The ornament is available for $15.99 (plus shipping and handling) online at, at the Golden Gate Bridge Gift Center or by calling toll-free 511 (say "Golden Gate Transit," then operator--7am-7pm weekdays, 8am-6pm weekends/holidays).
