Rare Single Queens South Africa Medals

(Please note these are being Priced.. please contact)

The Queen’s South Africa Medal was instituted in 1900, for award to military personnel, civilian officials and war correspondents who served in South Africa during the Second Boer War from 11 October 1899 to 31 May 1902.

Three versions of the medal are known. Since the war was initially expected to be of short duration and to reach its conclusion in 1900, the first medals were struck with the years “1899” and “1900” on the reverse. Approximately fifty of these medals were awarded before it became evident that the war was to drag on much longer. The rest of the dated medals that had already been minted, therefore, had these dates machined off. The third version was minted with an altered reverse and without the years
