Cos his granny has a few spare :lol:

ALL members of the royal family and royal household are entitled to it as are ALL recipients of the VC and GC!

Because he is also a member of the Royal Household. It is not a military award.

HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales both wear the Coronation, Silver Jubilee and Golden Jubilee medals.

HRH The Duke of York has the Silver and Golden Jubilee medals.

And damn fine it looks in my collection of belgian chocolates :) At least it shines up and is not made of super-cheap alloy or cardboard (like my 2 NATO and 3 UN gongs).

Was it yours?
No, It was issued to a friend who is a copper, All he wanted was the ribbon so gave him a score for the medal!!

When they were first issued (rather before I got mine) I saw a couple at an Arms Fair in Durham going for £200 8O

i can undertsand an Old soldier selling his medals to pay his Bills as his pension is not enough for his living costs, when we shoulkd be providing them a decent retirement.

to sell them for beer tokens is a bit naff
