Couldn't relocate the site mentioned in my original reply (it was in Thai but my wife is away for a few days) but have come across another one.
It's your medallion exactly but it's for $1,000! It is however wrongly described as a coin and as Rama VI. Because the seller is located in Bangkok one would have thought that the description would be more precise.

I'm not an expert on these so I really don't know if it is worth that much but if it was for sale in Thailand that's about 30,000 Baht, Whether anyone would pay that for it here I just don't know. I'd just wait and see how that particular auction plays out.

Hi ozerman,

I actually have the same medal that you have. Unfortunately the ones that we have are replicas. I have done my research on this for hours as well. The actual hubs and dies for this medal were sold at a heritage auction on January 8th, 2007 herefor $6037.50 USD. Click on the pics at the bottom of the heritage link for high resolution images. If you exam these hubs and dies, you will find that things are different on your medal than on the actual hubs/dies. For instance, look at the reins on the elephant, on the real die they extend past the elephant under his neck, yours do not. Also look at the saddle on the elephant, the one that you have has a diamond pattern while the original one has a shield/crest. Not sure what the replica price is for this, but the one that Thai-vic is talking about may or may not be a replica, I don't know. If I could sell mine for $20 I would be happy though.

Note: You must sign in to heritage to view the larger pics. You can sign up for free. It's a great reference source.
