Australia Victoria
Sailors and Brothers c. 1890 (AD)
Mint: Stokes
Other Details: This is one of a small group of medals sharing the Sailors & Brothers obverse featuring clasped hands. They appear to be related to the Australian Sailor's Union and are known with reverses for Victoria and South Australia. The spade linked to an anchor on the reverse probably reflects the role of sailors in coaling.
