Hi Nirmal ,

Welcome to WOC !  , please introduce yourself with your interests .

The query you posed as a collector or investor  ? If I am not wrong  for collector it is irrelevant about present value of his collection but for investor he must  keep on updating the market value of  his collection .

Cheers ;D

Dear Nirmal,

Welcome to the Forum.
This medal is worth about Rs. 2000-2500, depending on the condition.
Another important factor in Medal collecting is regarding the Group of the medal.
A single medal will cost you about Rs. 2000.00, but if the same medal is accompanied by some more medals given to the same individual, its value increases many times.
Just see this thread, where you will find the same medal, in a group of 8. I purchased this group of medal for about Rs. 15,000.

Dear Nirmal,
A correction to my earlier reply -
The price of Rs. 2000-2500 is for the SILVER medal, which is Canadian made.
The Copper-Nickel medal, which were made in India, are available for much less - about Rs. 500 or so.
One such medal is currently available on Ebay for Rs. 450.

Ebay normally underrates or Over rates

Ebay is auction site.My understanding and opinion as follows :

One process is  bidding starts for an item and highest bidder take the item and consider as winner it takes place in fixed time period , but the process of bidding some time appears artificial .Prices may be inclusive of shipping charges or separately.

Another  process is to buy the product  with tag bearing " buy it now" price is fixed may be inclusive of shipping charges or separately .Buyer   to verify the credentials of seller (how much is feed back +ve /- ve , how long he has been registered and products quality etc ).

At the end it is always better to compare & understand the latest  price trends of any item . Mostly individual sellers are offering reasonable price in comparison to dealers /traders.

Other members will add their views as usual.

Cheers ;D

It is a wrong statement. If anything is overrated, it won't sell, and if it is underrated, then the seller is either ignorant about that article, or he is doing Charity, which is not the case with articles listed on E-bay.

World War II Victory Medal - Canadian silver version



I have had this medal since the 1960's.

It was scratched and damaged when I got it from a California coin dealer's "junk box",
probably from being in the box with lots of other coins and medals.

Was the Canadian version made in Canada? Silver was quite scarce in the European theatre during the forties, but it was still available in North America.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

As I understand it, the dies were made in Britain and shipped to the Canada Mint
where the silver medals were struck.
