7. Concha Medal by Sweet Craft Jewelry
Sweet Craft Jewelry is known for making earrings, so why not a medal? This pan dulce looks super sweet and is a must have for fans of the Mexican pastry $10 at Lolita & D.J. Bakery, 1712 Blanco Road.

8. Come and Take It Elote by BarbacoApparel
Since Fiesta is a celebration of the ultimate Texan victory at San Jacinto, it makes sense to have medals that symbolize the battles for Texas Independence. BarbacoApparel did just that, taking the Battle of Gonzales flag and swapping out the canon for an elote. Available for $8 online in the BarbacoApparel store.

9. Taco Pacman by Tony Infante
This is the medal for all 80s enthusiasts! Instead of pellets and fruit, Pacman is chasing down tacos and chiles. Made by Tony Infante, $1 from every medal sold goes to benefit Southwest Voter Registration and Education Project. Medal is available at store.saflavor.com for $10.
10. Pan Dulce by Vara Chevrolet
Vara Chevrolet featured a platter of pan dulces in their 2017 medal with the tagline "Vamos con Vara." They were available at the dealership for $10 with all proceeds going to St. PJ's Children's Home.
11. Fry Calavera by McDonald's
Even though they're a big box store, the team who worked on the McDonald's medal certainly knows the local culture. The medal features a calavera with eyes made out of burgers and a mouth made out of fries. The medals are $7 at local Mickey Ds and proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House.

12. Miss Margarita by Christina Liserio
2017 has local blogger Christina Liserio of Born and Graised SA focusing her "research" on margaritas. So she decided to personify the libation as Miss Margarita. Available for $10 at store.saflavor.com, a dollar from every sale goes to benefit The Chow Train to help feed SA's homeless population.
13. Del Rio Tortilla Factory
Like the colors of their building, the Del Rio Tortilla Factory's Fiesta medal is red and yellow, and has the extra bling of some glittery red lettering. This medal is available at 1402 Gillette Blvd. for $5, with $3 of it going to San Antonio Food Bank.

14. Rolando's Super Tacos
This medal captures the enormity of a super taco at Rolando's! Fans of the Hildebrand restaurant know that one of these tacos is more than a meal! This Fiesta medal is $10 and available at their store on 919 W. Hildebrand Ave.
