This handsome collection was issued by the Worth Collection in 2018 to honour the 100th anniversary of the RAF (Royal Air Force) 1918-2018. You get five different crownsized full-colour medallions in a stunning blue plush display case. The planes shown in full colour are: Spitfire AB910, Dakota III ZA947, Hurricane LF363, Chipmunk WG486 and WK518 and the Lancaster Pa474. This is a handsome collection but the Worth Collection has kept to their usual incredibly low price of just £19.50 for all five medals plus the display case. That is less than £4 a medallion, compare that to the medals being advertised in the National Press and you will see what a bargain this collection is, but supplies are limited. You will love this collection.

When Prince Charles announced his engagement to Lady Diana Spencer, Coincraft was the only company in the whole world who managed to get out a medallion in the very short time allotted. But we even managed two different designs. When the informal bust design sold out, we had a second issue made with an informal dress. It is this second and scarcer of the two with formal dress that we now offer you. Steve found 45 of the formal bust engagement medallion in goldine when we moved. They are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and really are difficult to find, we should know, we had them made in 1981.

This handsome crownsized Proof medallion was issued in 1987, some 31 years ago for the Maiden voyage of Cunard’s ship the Queen Elizabeth II. One of the people who made this medallion for Cunard found some in a room at his business. They had sat there forgotten for the past 31 years. Anything with ships on it is highly collectable. In Germany there is even a club for ship coin collectors. This gleaming two coloured Proof shows the great ship on one side the Queen Elizabeth II symbol on the other side. It comes in a six-page full colour presentation wallet. The ship has now been laid up and is no longer in service.

In 1935 King George V celebrated his Silver Jubilee and the Royal Mint struck a beautiful medallion to honour the event. You have the conjoined busts of King George V and Queen Mary on one side and Windsor Castle on the other side. These medallions were struck in Sterling Silver and are now 83 years old. To protect them, the Royal Mint issued them in red card boxes, which over the years have gotten damaged and lost. So it was quite exciting when a dealer offered us this group complete in their original red card boxes of issue. Of course the medallions have toned over the years, but then this is what Sterling Silver does. The boxes have seen a little handling but are extremely difficult to find. The Royal Mint also issued a commemorative crown for the Silver Jubilee, so maybe it would be nice to show the two side by side.

Another exciting offer for our growing band of medal collectors The Imperial Service Medal was instituted on 8 August 1902 to reward civil servants (on retirement) for at least 25 years of loyal and meritorious service to the Crown. Originally, the Order was a silver, seven-pointed star. In 1920, the design of the medal changed to a round pattern (32mm and struck in Silver), which bore the monarch’s head on the obverse and, on the reverse side, a design with a naked man reclining to depict well-earned rest with the words ‘For Faithful Service’. The ribbon design consists of two red stripes with a blue stripe in the centre. The name of the recipient is impressed on the rim of the medal and all recipients are listed in the London Gazette. These were issued under our current monarch Elizabeth II. As issued.
