A 50mm, 56.5 gram medal in tested Sterling Silver, struck by the Royal Canadian Mint for Western University's 1998-2004 fundraising campaign. Reverse: Stone tower at center, text above: "Campaign Western 1998-2004", and below: "Western / Leading. Thinking". Obv: RCM Logo at center, billingual text around circumference: "Royal Canadian Mint / Monnaie Royale Canadienne". Struck with matte satin fields, with a couple minor field scuffs/scratches on the obverse, above and to left of RCM logo. This solitary example was rescued from a large bucket of the medals being submitted to a scrap-yard almost 20 years ago, and our preliminary research fails to find any record of such an issue existing.
