Medal: Canada Prince Edward Island 1873

Hello MadScotsMen -- Nice to hear from you again. You have a low-value medal from the Canadian Maritime Provice of Prince Edward Island. These sell for $5 to $15 US dollars, depending on condition.

PEI entered the Canadian Confederation on July 1, 1873. According to a CoinQuest visitor named Henri, this medal was produced in modern times as part of a gasoline promotion.

Comments

I have one of these with a purple violet instead of a lady slipper. Is it worth anything different? Also, are these medals actually from 1873, or were they just made in the 1900's to commemorate something that happened in 1873? - Ferdinand
This medal was produced in modern times as part of a gasoline promotion. If you submit your purple violet item using our 'free appraisal' request we will do the research and publish pictures and values. - CoinQuest (Paul)
