Indiana will be celebrating its 200th anniversary of statehood in 2016. As part of a year-long celebration, the Indiana Bicentennial Commission will be minting a commemorative medal, for which the IBA has been named the presenting sponsor. This sponsorship means that IBA-member banks will be the exclusive distribution points for official order forms for the Indiana bicentennial medal.
