The latest object to be put on display in the museum is a medallion issued by the London & North Western Railway in commemoration of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887.

The obverse depicts the Queen’s head with the reverse announcing the dedication of Queen’s Park, Crewe being presented to the town in the same year.  The LNWR is also shown in the outline of the 3,000th locomotive built at Crewe.

The medallion hangs on a pressed brass brooch of the LNWR crest, measuring 1¼” x 1¼”.  The round medallion is 1½” in diameter.
