A 60mm bronze medal with mirrored fields, presented to a member of the Royal Canadian Mint's production staff for 35 years service. Housed in black RCM case, and accompanied by an original long-sleeved RCM-issued green shirt (Canadian-made, by SC Walker), as worn by plant employees in the 1980's. Also includes a trio of 8x10" colour photocopy prints of coin blank production inside the Mint, one of which features a pair of employees wearing the same issue of shirt. A unique lot for any serious collector of RCM memorabilia on a couple of fronts: the first example of this medal design we have seen or handled, and almost certainly one of the only surviving staff shirts from this era. NOTE: retiree's name (engraved on the medal front) has been obscured in our image.
