Shane writes: I have a coin in my possession that I would like some info on. It is in excellent condition. The coin has a date stamp of 1837 with what I’m assuming is a young Queen Victoria bust. The wording on the left side of the bust is “Longi-tvdo diervm in dexteria eivs” and on the other “Et in sinistra gloria”. On the reverse side is an older bust of Queen Victoria and the words “Victoria annvm regni sexagesimvm feliciter clavdit xx ivn – MDCCCXCVII” Cheers, Shane.
You have a 1897 Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria Medal. I think you have one of the official issues by T. Brock. This marked the 60th year of Queen Victoria’s reign in England. The medals were struck in two sizes, large 56 mm and small 21mm, in gold, silver and copper.
You didn’t mention the size, metal or condition but depending on that information the value range is from $10 – $1,400. The value can be greater if you have the original box of issue.
