Silver Medal Set
There are two sets of these sterling silver medallions. One has 36 pieces and the other has 20. If there are
other sets with different numbers, I haven't seen them. The reverse of each medal is the same, but the
obverses show different vessels of the IJN.
Each measures about 5 cm diameter and weighs 40 grams.
The artwork is very detailed and quite striking. A full set is expensive, but oftentimes single medals
appear for sale.
The title of this set is 'Japanese Navy Warship, Limited Edition Fine Art Medal Collection.' Although I am not
certain, I think that this set was made in Showa 60 .
There is also a related series that shows Japanese military aircraft. I have no pictures at the moment.
The reverse is the same on all of the medals.
