Investiture Medals of Prince of Wales


Recommended Posts

Looks like I picked up a trio of Investiture Medal from the Prince of Wales' investiture in 1969. One of each type - Bronze, Silver and Silver Oxidised. Interesting to note how dark the Silver version has gone. Welsh Dragon on reverse, Charlie (ex-hubbie of Princess DI) on reverse (obverse?)..

 

1. Bronze

Very interesting. I don't think the portrait looks that much like him. I noticed that the silver piece is hallmarked which I believe is a common practice for silverware but I hadn't noticed it on medals before. The three medals in your Royals set also appear to have hallmarks on the reverses. Can you tell what they say?
