1891 Switzerland 700 Years of Confederation Medal/Medallion 50mm, Aluminum, engraver Lauer. Reverse features shields of all the Cantons.

 

Now I don't know if it's official being that its aluminum, but I do like it. :ninja: Anybody know of a good book on Swiss medals in English?

Wow. For aluminum, that is a real beauty, Tiff :ninja:

How'd you get aluminum to be so photogenic? All my attempts at decent aluminum pics are garbage ;)

I had to basically turn the light almost completely away. You notice it's kinda dark. ;)

I would like to share my new aquisition of a medal like reported here by Tifibunny.

One correction I would like to offer is that is is the sexcentennial (600 years--1291 to 1891) and not the 700th anniversary as listed.

Tifibunny's coin looks to be in better condition but I am very happy to have this one.
