I have a Commander(LW) that was made in 1976 and has silver medallions with 150 on them, assuming they are 150 year celebration symbols. The grips are fully checkered. Did Colt ever go bake to gold colored medallions after that?

Definitely.

I've also seen Gold 150 year medallions, and bronze Custom Shop versions.

As soon as the anniversary was over, the standard Gold medallions came back into use.

medic15al, so you do suspect these were replacement grips, right?

Considering when Colt was formed the 150 year anniversary medallions were found on guns starting in 1986.

Your 1976 would not have come with those medallions.
