Different variations of Russian 50 and 60 Years of Victory Medals

Recommended Posts

I've encountered two different varations of the Russian 50 and 60 Years of Victory Medals.

First of all the 50 Years of Victory Medal:

And similar differences on the 60 Years of Victory Medal. Are these made by different mints or is the one of poorer quality an unofficial issue?

Can you find makers' marks on them?

The first one has an LMD mint mark on the ring, the second one has nothing.

The maker's mark on the 60th ann. medal (on mine anyway) is on the reverse center at the very bottom below the bow.

On the 50th, it's on the reverse of the suspension loop.

Unfortunately I don't have access to my medals at this moment. In my previous message I was referring to the 50 Years of Victory Medal (the first one has an LMD mint mark on the reverse of the ring and the second one has nothing).

The 60s both have marks. At the moment I can only provide these poor scans:

Nice medals Gents!

Unmarked medals were manufactured by Moscow Mint

Leningrad pieces have better quality and also slightly more rare than Moscow pieces ;)

If I remember correctly 12 different variants of docs should be in existence for this one :whistle:

Cheers,

Nick

Yes, but maybe our colleges mark them as variations anyway?

All I can say is that once I read somewhere that there are 12 variations of docs for this medal.

Maybe just another phaleristic gossip :whistle:

Jubilee Medal "60 Years of Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941–1945

From the collectors point of view, this medal is interesting because it was not produced only by the Russian Federation mint but also
by some CIS states mint specifically from Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, then there are five variants of the medal,
while on the documents of assignment there are six types.
Below I show you the five variants of the Medal
