Need help with this Queen Elizabeth II 1953 Token


Recommended Posts

The effigy does not match any used by any of the official mints that I can see.  It may have been a private issue.  The medal utilizes the Canadian maple leaf along with the opening line of the United Kingdom's national anthem (God Save The Queen) leading me to believe it may had been issued for distribution as a keepsake for Canadians.  A similar item in a different metal is found here at Colonial Acres Coins in Canada.  Perhaps you can call them and see if they have more information on the source and production of this medal.  Good luck on further researching it and let us know what you may (or may not) have found out about it.
