Medal: Canada Confederation 1927
You've got a nice medal, CountryGirl. This one with King George and his Queen, Mary of Teck (a German princess), minted in 1927 and commemorating the Canadian Confederation in 1867. The retail value of the one in the picture is about $10 US dollars. Yours would be more if in good shape, less if in not-so-good shape. Dealers generally pay one-half of retail price for items they buy from the general public.

Requester description: 1927 On one side: A picture of the Candian coat of arms (without the lion, horse, or flags, it's just the shield, very basic). Around it there is a wreath of leaves. And a crown at the top of the shield. Below the shield on a small banner it says 'A MARI VSQVE AD MARE'. The back side: There is a picture of a man and a woman overlaping each other. On the left side it says '1867', on the right, it says '1927'. Above the two people it says 'CONFEDERATION', below them it says 'CANADA'. It is almost twice as thick as a present day loonie.
