Item specifics

Seller notes: The medal illustrated in my images is the actual item for sale in this listing. I have taken the best photographs I can in natural light, where possible, in order to ensure any defects are shown. Bear in mind however, that the image detail is reduced by the Ebay uploading process. This medal is in superb collectable condition for its age but obviously, prospective purchasers should bear in mind that it has been in limited circulation and its condition reflects this as shown.
Type: British Period: 19th Century

1897 Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Bronze Four Generations Medal

Here I am offering a superb example of this historic commemorative medal issued for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria.

These were actually struck in 1895 then issued officially in 1897 for the Queen's historic 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne. The design was also used for commercial advertising purposes, most notably for Remington Typewriters.

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 on the obverse FOUR GENERATIONS OF THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY. Around the edge at 8 o'clock it reads 10 SEP 95 H.GREUBER & CO. 1897 37 SNOWHILL LONDON E.C.

The reverse has a centre line of three shields: Ireland, England, and Scotland. The rather androgynous angel embellishment on the Irish harp is particularly well-endowed on these, I always think; maybe the engraver was having a little poke at Victorian prudery! There is a crown above and flowers below the shields. The legend reads THE DIAMOND JUBILEE above a crown. The legend around the rim 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 are striking in quality. Overall this example is in superb collectable condition with traces of lustre remaining.

The diameter is 32.2mm and it weighs 11.45g. It is a most attractive chocolate brown colour over much of the surfaces with rather an attractive halo of lustre around the portraits.

This will be a low start no reserve auction as usual.

My shipping charges are as reasonable as I can keep them. I charge only £0.75 - £1.75 for most UK items, £3.40 to ship to Europe and £3.95 worldwide, inclusive of my own costs. Furthermore I charge these same prices for packages up to 100g and above 100g at cost. So to make it more economical, why not browse through all my current listings. If there's something else you'd like to bid on, just mail me with your intention to make a multiple purchase and you can pay later. And as my feedback will testify, you can expect your purchases to arrive quickly in secure, discreet packaging.

For all multiple purchases, you only need to pay once you've finished shopping; just ask me for an invoice when you wish to check out.
