BOMBAY. Medal for the Prince of Wales’s Visit in 1921


An oval bronze medal struck for this occasion during the Royal Tour of 1921-22. The obverse shows a profile bust of Prince Edward [later King Edward VII] facing to the right; the reverse has a raised inscription Visit of His Royal Highness, Bombay, November 1921. The Prince of Wales feathers topped by a loop forms the method of suspension. Beneath the bust is the date 1921 within a monogram TC – presumably the medal designer or engraver’s mark. This example has an associated blue ribbon. Little seems to be known about the distribution of this medal. There is no ribbon with this medal. The overall measurements, including suspension, are 55 x 30mm.  jan8/8
