1935 Jubilee Medal
The 1935 Jubilee medal was issue in May 1935 to commemorate the twenty-fifth year of the reign of King George V. The obverse of the medal depicts the conjoined busts of King George V and his consort, Queen Mary, while the reverse shows the Royal Cypher surmounted by a crown and the dates May 6, 1910 and May 6, 1935.
The medal was issued to members of the Royal Household and to other deserving individuals. As the Charlottetown Guardian reported on May 4, 1935,
"Former Lieutenant Governors, the judiciary, clergy and religious sisterhoods, military officers, educationalists, and physicians share honors with lowly servants of the public including mail couriers and lighthouse tenders."
Diameter: 1.25 inches
Silver Ribbon: Red with edge stripes of dark blue and white Issued: 85,235 - 7,500 allocated to Canada
Medals issued to gentlemen were worn in the traditional military style. The ladies version was presented with the medal ribbon formed into a bow.
1935 Jubilee Medals fall into the category of official issues and therefore may be worn on the left breast with other military and civilian orders and decorations. In the past one hundred fifty years, there have been a number of these official Royal awards:
Queen Victoria Golden Jubilee Medal
Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Medal
King Edward VII Coronation Medal
King George V Coronation Medal
King George V Jubilee Medal
King George VI Coronation Medal
Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Medal
Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal
From the issue dates above, the reader may note that Coronation Medals are issued as of the date of the Coronation while commemoratives use the date when the Monarch first takes the throne. Queen Elizabeth II assumed the throne in 1952 upon the death of King George VI, but the Coronation did not take place until June 1953. The Coronation medal was issued in 1953, but the 1977 Silver Jubilee Medal counts twenty-five years from 1952. If tradition holds true, the year 2002 will see the issue of a Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal.
