Hello Gentlemen,

In these incertain time, the Kingdom of Denmark choose to maintain, the Tradition.

To commemorate the 80th Birthday of Queen Margreth II, a silver medal was issued, on 16 April 2020.

I have not seen this medal, and maybe will never have the occasion. But in the Kingdom of Denmark, one thing is sure, the quality of this medal is stunning (as ever).

I would be happy to know how many such a medal have been awarded, as the Birthday of the Queen was celebrated, with a very small number of guest attended (likely only her 2 Son's Prince Hendrik with Princess Mary & Prince Joachim). I read the message of wishes sent by all the royalty of Europe, that were suppose to attend, but due to coronavirus, they all send their wishes by Letters, or by Zoom.

Long Lives the Queen.

Regards to all.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
