Also, what metal was used (i.e. silver, bronze, aluminium ??).

Thanks in advance.

I suspect the president Steyn medal is like virtually all other Oranje Vrijstaat numismatic issues a speculative pattern or trial. I have done a lot of looking but cannot find any record of the OV issuing any award medals for the 2nd Boer War. Mind you it would look quite sexy next to an Anglo-Boer Oorlog.

Thanks Dug.

In which book/publication did you find this information ??

Paul, as I have only a drawing of that medal I do not know if it was actually ever made and issued.

Did a lot of internet searching myself and could not find anything else about it.

Thanks for the effort 🙂
