A Medallion imprint can certify documents for which we will accept photocopies. (Note a Medallion Signature Guarantee has the same meaning as the previously required phrase "Guaranteed that the within is a true and correct copy of the original and is in full force and effect and that the maker is alive as of ..."). Medallion Signature Guarantees do not omit the need for required legal documents, such as death certificates, tax waivers, or corporate resolutions.
