Nova Scotia medals is one of my main interests. Oak Island is near Mahone Bay, NS and is quite famous as possibly being the sight of Captain Kidd buried treasure, with lives and millions of dollars having been spent trying to locate the treasure. Book have been written about this place. This is a souvenir medal. The mint is unknown, likely a stock blank being used, and it is aluminum, 26mm and the mintage is unknown. It has a catalogue value of $5, but because these come up for auction so rarely (I only have one and paid just under $5 for mine in unc) clearly you have at least a couple of bidders who really want the medal. My bid is in there, but lower than the $12.
Oh, there are two versions too, one without the inverted USA and one with, like this one.
