Jubilee and Coronation Metropolitan Police Pair comprising:
Jubilee Medal for the Metropolitan Police 1887, with 1897 clasp. Circular bronze medal with claw and ribbon bar suspension with original ‘1897’ clasp; the face with the veiled head of Queen Victoria facing left, circumscriber ‘VICTORIA REGINA’, signed ‘L. C. WYON’ (for the great medallist Leonard Charles Wyon, 1826-1891, Chief Engraver at the Royal Mint); the reverse inscribed ‘JUBILEE OF HER MAJESTY QUEEN VICTORIA’ within a wreath of oak, a royal crown above, circumscribed ‘METROPOLITAN POLICE’ and dated ‘1887’ below, English roses to either side, attributed on the edge to ‘PC, G. BARRETT. N. DIVN’; on replaced correct ribbon. The medal was instituted in 1887 and awarded to the Metropolitan and City of London Police to mark the 50th anniversary of the ascent to the throne of Queen Victoria on 20 June 1887. Recipients of the medal still serving in 1897 received a clasp for the medal. It is recorded that 8,708 such clasps were awarded to the Metropolitan Police.
Coronation (Police) Medal, 1902, Metropolitan Police version, bronze, attributed. Circular bronze medal with claw and swivel ribbon bar suspension; the face with the crowned head of King Edward VII facing left, circumscribed ‘EDWARDUS VII REX IMPERATOR’ (Edward VII King Emperor), signed ‘DES’ (for George William de Saulles, 1862-1903, Chief Engraver to the Royal Mint); the reverse inscribed ‘CORONATION OF HIS MAJESTY KING EDWARD VII’ and dated ‘1902’ below right above a Tudor crown on branches of oak and laurel, all within a ring circumscribed above ‘METROPOLITAN • POLICE •’; attributed on the edge to ‘P. C. G. BARRETT. N. DIV.’; on probably original somewhat frayed ribbon. The medal was instituted to mark the Coronation of King Edward VII on 9 August 1902 and awarded in different versions to Metropolitan Police, Fire and Ambulance Services. Only 16,709 bronze Metropolitan Police medals were awarded.
