Diameter 50mm

Charles Riley 2015 medal

Charles Riley 2015 medal

Obverse: a seated female harpist right, in field 10 YEARS 2005-2015, incuse on a raised border CHARLES RILEY COINS & MEDALS

Reverse: 25 YEARS, dates 1990-2015 above, Welsh legend below NID AUR YW POPETH MELYN (literally ‘Not gold is everything yellow’ i.e. ‘everything that glistens is not gold’), incuse on a raised border PROFESSIONAL NUMISMATIST ENGLAND

 

To commemorate 25 Years in the numismatic business, and 10 Years working for myself I have issued the medal pictured above. The harpist was designed by renowned English medallist Joseph Moore, originally appearing on Welsh eisteddfod medals of the 1860s; I’ve adopted it as my logo. This and the Welsh language legend are a nod to my personal interest in Welsh medals as well as being a jocular reference to the medal’s metal content (it is a gilded zinc-based alloy). The diameter is 50mm.

This medal has now been published in Paul & Bente Withers’s reference book “The Token Book, vol.3: Tickets & Passes and their values” (2016), ref.no.3059 (page 412)

Please note: I found it very difficult to photograph this medal. In my opinion it appears much better in the flesh!
