The ornament is solid brass, finished in 24kt gold, handmade and manufactured by American artisans,  is 2-½ inches wide by 3 inches tall, and will be available in June for $15.99 (limited time price).

The second annual 2004 Golden Gate Bridge Collectible Ornament is still available for $15.99 and features a stunning three dimensional design of the Bridge’s massive south tower, is 2¾ x 3½, solid brass, finished in 24kt gold. A limit number of the first year’s Limited Edition ornament (2003), which features a three-dimensional replica of the Golden Gate Bridge framed with a blue sky backdrop, are still available for $24.99.

The Golden Gate Bridge “Collect a Landmark” Ornament Program is modeled after the White House Historical Association Annual Ornament program which began modestly in 1981 with sales of less than 2,000 ornaments and has progressed to become the largest single Christmas ornament program in the U.S. as orders topped 1.2 million in 2003.

Combined sales for the first two collectible ornaments (2203 and 2004) total about $100,000 with sales volumes growing each year as more Bridge fans and collectors learn about the program. The “Collect a Landmark” ornaments are available through the online Gift Store at www.goldengate.org and at the Gift Store located on the southeast side of Bridge.
