Breton-147. 50.7mm. 65.8g. Cornucopia and ARGENT on edge. Struck at the Paris Mint after 1879. A challenging medal with the arms of the Archbishop of Ottawa on the obverse and the arms of the Diocese of Ottawa on the reverse. Examples also exist in copper. One sold as part of the Jeffrey Hoare Auctions Sale #6 in 1988. Both sides are minimally toned with dusky golden accents. Slightly muted surfaces, but still pleasing with just a couple of minute rim nicks.
From the Michael Joffre Collection of Canadian Historical Medals.
