Medal: Great Britain Universal Exhibition  1862
Medal: Great Britain Universal Exhibition 1862

It is not a coin, Jeremy, but a medal. And a really cool medal it is!

There is a terrific web site called Medals4Trade.com that shows all sorts or really cool medals just like yours, and CoinQuest thanks them for use of the medal photograph. It is a beauty!

Evaluating medals and tokens is more difficult than standard coins because the market is smaller and more specialized. My guess at value, if your medal looks like Medals4Trade's, would be $40 to $80 US dollars.

A good way to guess at a medal's value is to look at web sites with medals for sale, find one that is close to yours in date, composition, topic, eye appeal, and wear, then figure yours will command approximately the same value. If you want to sell your medal to a dealer, figure he or she will pay about one-half retail price. Here are some links:
