Elizabeth II, Maiden Voyage 'New 'Queen Elizabeth Medal
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.
