Requester description: I understand that it is an 1860 Peru 6 reales Constitucion Reform commemorative Gold medal.
I have found the same item in silver via internet searches but I am unable to find any reference to a gold version. This has been confirmed as gold by a local coins and medals dealer but he was unable to provide any further information.
The item weighs 28 grams and is approx 34 mm in diameter.
I would appreciate any information about its history and if possible could you give me some idea of the value or what other examples have sold for.
