Tynemouth Coronation Medal, 1902

Here is a lovely medal from the coronation of King Edward VII and his wife, Queen Alexandra in June 1902. At this time, Jacob Daglish was the Mayor of Tynemouth.


Jacob is also remembered on a statue of Queen Victoria in Tynemouth which reads:

"Erected by public subscription to the memory of our late beloved Queen Victoria by the inhabitants of the Borough of Tynemouth during the Mayoralty of Alderman Daglish J.P. 1901-02 and unveiled by the Mayoress October 25th 1902".

Jacob was a brewer and had founded Duncan & Daglish, the Newcastle brewers and wine and spirit merchants. There is more information about Jacob Daglish and the company below - see article posted on 3 March 2007.

Hi Stephen. I have another different coronation medal. It is gold and has King Edward and Queen Alexandra on the back facing left and on the front is a crest of some sort. It is in its original box and ribbon. Can you help in finding out how much it is worth? Cheers!

Difficult to estimate value without other details, but the box and ribbons should add value. Many of these medals come up for sale on e-bay, so you could do a search there for "1902 Coronation Medal". There are currently many listed. Hope this helps. With best, wishes, Stephen.
