  • For HRH Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.

A number of medals and medallions were issued, by a number of different issuing houses, for the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897. 
The two sides of the medals show young head and veiled head portraits of the queen, engraved by T. Brock, in high relief.
The silver and gold medals were issued in two sizes, the bronze medals were only issued in the larger size.


This is the smaller of the two medals.

Veiled Head
The obverse features the veiled bust of the 'old head' Victoria with the inscription: - VICTORIA ANNVM REGNI SEXAGESIMVM FELICITER CLAVDIT XX IVN MDCCCXCVII

Young Head
The reverse depicts the famous young head portrait of Queen Victoria with the date of her accession to the throne (1837) below. To either side of the portrait is the inscription: - LONGITVDO DIERVM IN DEXTERA EIVS ET IN SINISTRA GLORIA
