Juliana Comes of Age

I missed a certified example on a recent Heritage auction, but came across this example from Carol Plante's ebay site.

    We should bring back the tradition of issuing "coming of age" medals :)

    I hadn't seen this one before. Its Art Deco origin is certainly demonstrated by the hand crafted fonts in the legends and the architectural style of the central heraldic element on the reverse. Neat!

    It has an interesting look on the obverse with the strong contrast between high and low relief in the design. I had not heard of "coming of age" medals before you posted this.

    All glory is fleeting.

    Not sure why but MWB doesn't like the image host for Harasha's last two posts
