Medal: Canada Queen Elizabeth Coronation  1953
Medal: Canada Queen Elizabeth Coronation 1953

Every school child in Canada got one of these spiffy medals when Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953. There are plenty of them to go around, and that keeps the price low.

Do you see the difference between the two medals in our two pictures? The medal in our main picture, showing both front and back, looks much nicer than the medal in our secondary picture. The main picture is a high relief strike and the secondary picture is a low relief strike. The high relief makes the medal look nicer, but the low relief is much more economical to produce. The school kids got the low relief. Dignitaries got the high relief. Get the picture?

So, for value, it depends on whether you have a high relief or low relief specimen. Here are some approximate values.

LOW RELIEF
worn: $1 US dollar
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $10

HIGH RELIEF
worn: $5 US dollar
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $100

Be sure to apply the concepts outlined on our Important Terminology page when figuring out the value for your specific medal.
