  • Sale
  • Regular price £345.00

30mm. Bronze.

Unsigned but by C.Emptmeyer.

The official issue to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897. Somewhat counter-intuitively, the bronze medal is actually less common than the silver issue. The reason for this is that qualifying holders of the earlier 1887 medal were simply awarded a clasp in 1897, rather than a second medal. Therefore, the reported issue of the bronze medal is only 890 pieces.

Extremely Fine and housed in fitted Wyon case.
