ANTIQUE PRINCE OF WALES VISITS JAPANESE IN KOREA MEDAL

ANTIQUE ANGLO-JAPANESE RELATIONS MEDAL

ITEM: This is an extremely rare (not an over statement at all) Japanese medal that commemorated a visit by Prince Edward (who later became Edward the VIII, Duke of Windsor) to the Seinendan. This group was a Japanese paramilitary youth group. And the icing on the cake is, this was the Seinendan in Korea, which was annexed by Japan at the time. The front of the medal has a portrait of Edward and enameled national flags of England and Japan. The medal is made of bronze. The back reads EIKOKU KOUTAISHI DENKA GORAICHOU KINEN (His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales Visit to Korea Commemoration), SHOUNENDAN NIPPON JAMUBORI- (Youth Group, Japan Jamboree) & TAISHO 11 NEN 4 GATSU 15 NICHI (April 15, 1922). This is a highly desirable medal on different levels; Japanese medal collectors, annexed Korea era items, British Royalty items, and Anglo-Japanese relations items are all very collectible. The medal is in perfect shape, no damage. It measures 30.5 mm in diameter. Comes with original case too. This comes from my personal collection, I guarantee it is real and extremely rare.
