Description:
The Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal () was a commemorative medal created in 2002 to mark the 50th anniversary of the accession to the throne of Queen Elizabeth II. The medal was physically identical in all realms where it was awarded, save for Canada, where it contained unique elements; as an internationally distributed award, the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal holds a different place in each country's order of precedence for honours.

Design

The medal is a circular, gold-plated, bronze (in Canada) or cupronickel (in the United Kingdom) medal with a thin raised edge and, on the obverse, an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The Canadian version shows the effigy crowned with the George IV State Diadem and circumscribed by the words QUEEN OF CANADA • REINE DU CANADA, while the reverse features a stylized maple leaf with CANADA at the bottom and the years 1952 • 2002 on the left and right of the Royal Cypher and crown. The medal distributed throughout the other Commonwealth realms shows the Queen wearing St. Edward's Crown and on the reverse of the British medal is the shield of the Queen's coat of arms for the United Kingdom flanked by the years 1952 and 2002. The medal is worn suspended from a broad royal blue ribbon with red outer stripes and, at the centre, double white stripes with a red stripe between.<ref name=UKDefence......
