    Nicholas II Coronation Medal, 1896.

    Nicholas II Coronation Medal, 1896.

    In silver, measures 32.6 mm in height incl. eyelet, 27.8 mm in width. Obverse shows portrait of the Emperor, with the inscription "Nicholas II, By the Grace of God, Emperor and Autocrat of All Russia". Reverse bears inscription "Crowned in Moscow on 14 May 1896".

    In fine to very fine condition. There are some light scratches to the obverse as well as moderate, even wear to its high points, but most details of the bas-relief portrait are still well-defined. The lettering is practically prefect, and the edge is completely free of bumps or significant dings. The reverse is nearly pristine, with extremely well preserved details of the crown and inscription. Attractive toning to silver throughout.

    The medal comes on original ribbon of the Order of St. Andrew in moiré silk, folded into traditional pentagon shape measuring about 15 cm in overall length (if it were unfolded.) The ribbon is in excellent condition, showing only very minimal wear, no stains, fraying or fading. The eyelet of the medal is attached directly to the ribbon with thread that appears to be of the period; the same kind of thread holds together the folds of the ribbon and secures its ends.

    /See Dimitri Romanov, "The Orders, Medals and History of Imperial Russia", pp. 226, 227/ , also Mikhail Diakov, "Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 7, 1894-1917", p. 100/.
