Coronation medal of Queen Elizabeth II (Tin)
« on: September 26, 2019, 02:08:08 PM »
Hi, I found this medal at an old coin store. It appears to be made of tin or some soft metal. I don't know whether it is a genuine medal or not.

The reverse has a wreath bound with ribbon having names of the major commonwealth nations : Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Pakistan and Ceylon (Sri Lanka).

Could anyone identify its genuineness?

Yes looks to be OK.

I have seen a few of these, its usually in aluminium which this one most probably is.

Thanks Malcolm,
I had this doubt because the pin attached to the medal looks too new, where as it would have shown a little corrosion considering the time elapsed.
I have tried to google all the available medals/ souvenirs of the Queen's coronation and check if I could come across a similar piece somewhere but I am yet to find one.
The medal is so light that it made me suspect of I genuineness. I am still not confident of it.
