1897 Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Four Generations Medal Fine Example :
1897 Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Copper Four Generations MedallionI'm offering this historic commemorative medallion, issued for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1997 at a low start with .It was actually struck in 1895 then issued in 1897 for the Queen's historic 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne. The obverse design was by H. GRUEBER (signed lower left rim). It shows the conjugated heads of Queen Victoria, The Prince of Wales (Later King Edward VII), Prince George (Later King George V) and Prince Edward (Later King Edward VIII) all facing left. Above is a crown, and below two sprays of leaves tied with ribbon and the date, 1897.
The legend reads FOUR GENERATIONS OF THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY. The reverse has a centre line of three shields: Ireland, England, and Scotland. There is a crown above and flowers below. The legend reads THE DIAMOND JUBILEE above a crown. The legend around edge reads TO COMMEMORATE THE 60TH YEAR OF HER MAJESTY'S REIGN 1837-97. It is medal orientated with a reeded edge. All in all a really rather unusual medal with a very finely struck design and font. The portraits really are striking in quality. There is slight wear on the obverse and scratches as shown but these to be fair look much less obvious in the hand. It's in fine collectable condition overall in my opinion. Diameter is 32mm and it weighs 11.4g. It's a very beautiful rich tan in colour.
