Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria [1837-1887]


A white metal commemorative of Queen Vicotria’s Golden Jubilee of 1887. The medal is 37mm in diameter [slightly large than most British campaign medals] and bears on the obverse the veiled head of Queen Victoria [as first used on the Egypt Medal] with the legend “VICTORIA QUEEN AND EMPRESS”. The reverse has the legend “VICTORIA 1837 1887 JUBILEE” around the imperial cypher VRI beneath an imperial crown. There is a small hole at the top of the medal. This may have been a medal struck in India, where the jubilee was highly celebrated. The use of the title Queen and Empress and the cypher VRI are not often found on this Medal.
