Not sure what to make of this...I assume it's a medallion of some sort, possible to commemerate a Royal event?

The only thing I am fairly certain of is that it's not Victorian! lol

If anybody can ID it, or even suggest who the monarch may be, I would be most grateful

Regards

Peter

I'm going to stick my neck out and say that it might be Edward VII, possibly a coronation medallion? :Thinking:

Thanks for that..I was thinking Edward VII but there is no mention of Queen Alexandra so not so sure...

Edited to add, looking carefully at his bust, I think I can make out a second figure looking out from behind and to the right..If so, that will be Queen Alexandra.....

The coat of arms on the reverse looks to be Welsh, which maybe suggests this is a medallion to commemorate Edwards investiture as Prince of Wales????

Yep, Edward VII Proclamation Medal 1901 (you can just make out the PRO... and date at the bottom of the obverse) :thumbsup:
