1897 Montreal Star newspaper Jubilee medal

Recommended Posts

Are there any Canadian medal collectors able to help me with this beauty? I can't find another online and the only reference,
Canadian Diamond Jubilee Medals by R. W. Mclachan on Archive.org suffers from bad OCR scanning. The edges are so crisp and sharp you could cut yourself.
Obverse:
Laureated bust of the Queen, left, 
 1837 to her left,  1897 to her right.
Around which:
 VICTORIA QUEEN. AND. EMPRESS 
Reverse:  
A shield bearing the arms of Great Britain ; outside of which a garter inscribed 
TO COMMEMORATE THE. SIXTIETH. YEAR. OF. MAJESTY'S. REIGN 
Around which  is a narrow wreath of 
maple leaves with CANADA at the top and the date  1897 below. 
It is signed QUINT PHILA.
(S. H. QUINT & SON This is a firm of engravers and medallists
doing business in Philadelphia.)
 

Bronze 38 mm.

This medal, in aluminum,  was distributed among the school children of Montreal by the  Star newspaper.The same medal was distributed in bronze and silver as prizes by the Montreal Exposition Co. at their exhibition held in August  1897.

Not familiar with this one but I have a feeling I've seen it before.
