hi,

i posted this on a forum a long time ago and far, far away, but no one could come to a conclusive identification. i recently saw one for sale in a shop somewhere, which reminded me that i have one and still don't know what it is.

it's nicely struck in silver gilt, ribbon is a pale blue watered silk

what the heck is it? a jubille medal, or something struck to commemorate a royal visit to one of the colonies?

I know I'm a little late in responding to this 'challenge', but I can confirm that it is a Masonic jewel struck to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887.

All Brethren in a Lodge under the United Grand Lodge of England (....and Wales!) at the time of the event would have been entitled to wear it.

Hope that helps,

Richard
