Jubilee' bust left, signature below, rev. inscription in wreath.
Very rare, only 133 minted in gold, and only 73 awarded, the rest melted. Mint state, NGC MS62
Gold examples were presented to members of the Royal Household and their personal guests at the jubilee ceremony.
They were minted with the loop so that they could be worn at the ceremony - as most were, so finding one in this high grade is very rare.
Additionally, this medal in silver was given to government ministers, senior officials, distinguished foreign visitors, navel and military officers involved in the Jubilee parade on 20 June 1887.
