This medal was made from the first batch of metal from the first water powered aluminium smelter. DE NACH DEAN AN T'UISGE, 'NUAIR A RINN E MISE. = What water can not do, when it can make me.

 

Construction of the smelting works began in 1904 and was completed in 1909, but aluminium was produced in a temporary smelter in 1907.

 

38mm RRR.

I like the "view" designs. A new aluminum piece I'll have to watch for.
