Cholera Medal 1865

Recommended Posts

Hello

Can anybody provide the number of Cholera medals awarded. Did they also come in gold and bronze.  In a recent auction one fetched an amazing 40,000 dollars more or less including auction fees in silver. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I tried  some well known books but could not find a number.

Appreciate the search Gentlemen

I suppose there can't be more than a handful in existence today.  I wonder about the depiction on the reverse if that is the Tree of Life. It is wonderfully executed and a lot of thought had gone into its design.  Perhaps it is similar to the Portugese Yellow Fever medal of 1858 in way of award criteria such as doctor, nurse volunteer.  They were both given for humanitarian services in their respective capitals.  Wonder if other Empires, Kingdoms, Duchies, Principalities had issued medals for such circumstances. If so please mention.

Thanks

Brian
