Seated Britannia confers a wreath upon the head of industry. A very unusual example struck in white metal, as opposed to bronze. Edge plain.

Extremely Fine and very rare.

This medal is though to be item number 28 from the Leslie Lewis Allen collection which is described as being 'with gilt metal 'frame' and suspension loop and ring ... the obverse glass loose'. This medal was originally contained in the metal frame, and had the obverse glass loose, but has since been removed.
