Miniature circular silver medal with claw and swivel ribbon bar suspension with ‘SOUTH AFRICA 1902’ clasp; the face with the head and shoulders portrait of King Edward VII facing left, circumscribed ‘EDWARDUS VII REX IMPERATOR’ (Edward VII King Emperor); the reverse with the full-length helmeted figure of Britannia, a standard in her left hand, her right arm extended with a laurel wreath, her shield and trident on the ground behind her, soldiers marching in a landscape beyond, warships near the coast beyond; diameter 18.45mm (0.72 inch); on original ribbon.

The Medal was instituted in 1902 to replace the Queen’s South Africa Medal bearing the image of Queen Victoria following her death on 22 January 1901 to be awarded to participants in the Boer War present in South Africa after 1 January 1901 and who served there for at least 18 months before 1 June 1902.

A good period miniature.
