Pakistan, Independence Golden Jubilee Medal
A very attractive and colourful medal from the Pakistan medal series. This medal was issued in 1997 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee (50 Years) of Independence from India which was formally recognised on 15 August 1947. The obverse of the medal shows the crescent and five-pointed star symbolising progress and light with the date 1947 above and 1997 below suspended from a bar with the legend ‘Pakistan Independence’ in Urdu. The reverse is inscribed ‘50th Anniversary’ in Urdu characters within a circle. The ribbon is very colourful with red, pink, green and gold stripes. A great addition for your collection.
