Channel Islands' Exhibition Medal 1871
The 1876 Coinage Committee wanted the reverse to be "similar to, though not an exact copy of the
Channel Islands' Exhibition Medal 1871, which also contains other arms than those of the Island. As regards [to] the obverse,
the Committee is particularly desirous of retaining that of the Jersey coinage,
one penny and one half penny pieces of which are herein enclosed-- the only alteration needed being the
the year 1876 for 1866, or 1870."
This medal was 50 mm in diameter and was designed by J. B. Payne, whose name
appears at the bottom of the medal.
McCammon states that 66 silver and 176 bronze
medals were awarded.
