  1. Hello Great Dane,

    Beautifull photo, I do not remember I had seen the Silver Jubilee Wedding Medal of Queen Margrethe II in color.

    Maybe one day I can get one, but recent royal commemorative medals from Denmark are rare on market.

    If ever you know one person, who could have such a medal for sale, my email is emmanuelhalleux@hotmail.com 

    Regards.

      Ahh... you have a couple that I'm still missing... 🙂

      As should probably be obvious from my postings, I collect Danish medals and orders (I'm a Dane who emigrated to Canada about 7 years ago). 

      I'm a member of the board of the Orders and Medals Society of Denmark (OMSD) and the website (omsd.dk) is my creation... not many other 'technical' people in that group 🙂

      I haven't had any trouble getting items shipped from Bruun Rasmussen (if you're willing to pay the price). They have my credit card and address on file, and it normally goes smoothly. Flying from Canada to Denmark to pick up is normally not an option...

      Hi Emmanuel,

      I'll keep an eye open, but they are hard to find. As you probably know, the nos. awarded for the various jubilee, birthday and commemoration medals vary wildly, depending on who the monarch decides should be 'in scope'. Like from the Queen's 50th birthday medal (26 awarded) to the 70th birthday medal (450 awarded).

      I don't have the award nos. for many of the newer ones.

      Auction house Bruun Rasmussen had a selection for auction last year (I think) from one of the Queen's lady-in-waiting who passed away. Those medals went for hysterical prices - probably because most of them hadn't been on the market before.
