New Zealand, Royal Visit Medal
One of the first things that the newly crowned Queen
Elizabeth II did, was plan a world trip to many of her
nations in the Commonwealth. New Zealand was high on
her list of places to visit and we were able to buy a small
group of the Official medal issued for the Royal visit.
On one side you have a handsome portrait of the Queen
in her crown; the other side reads ‘Elizabeth II Royal Visit
1953-54’ along with a crowned shield, flowers and Maori
implements. To top it all off there is blue ribbon and pin
for wearing. These are highly prized by the people
who own them in New Zealand.
These are in Uncirculated condition, but the bronze
medal may have mellowed a bit over the past 65 years. We
think you will love them, but supplies are very limited and
once these are gone, we don’t know where we'll find any
