Ceylon Police Medal for Gallantry (with King George VI effigy)
Estimated market value:
The Ceylon Police Medal for Gallantry was established by King George VI by Royal Warrant on June 19, 1950. The Silver Medal was awarded to members of the Ceylon Police for acts of gallantry. The Medal was made obsolete when Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) became a republic in 1972.
The Medal is similar in design to the Ceylon Police Medal for Merit but features the reverse inscription "FOR GALLANTRY" instead of "FOR MERIT" and features a distinctly patterned ribbon.
There are 2 versions of the Medal which differ by the obverse effigy of the ruling monarch.
