Second China War Medal 1861

Unnamed as issued to the navy, in very fine condition. The medal's obverse shows the diademed head of Queen Victoria with the legend VICTORIA REGINA. The reverse has the same coat of Royal Arms and shield found on both the First China War Medal with the inscription ARMIS EXPOSCERE PACIM and the word CHINA in the exergue below. The suspender is the same as that used on the Indian Mutiny Medal. The Second China War Medal was issued by the British Government in 1861 to members of the British Army and Royal Navy who took part in the Second Opium War of 1856 to 1860 against China. The medal was designed by William Wyon.
