This is one 1897 Commemorative medal that's very interesting.
What I'll call the reverses depicts four generations on the Royal Family, Queen Victoria, future Kings Edward VII, George V and Edward VIII.
I have come to find out there are at least three completely different obverses associated with this four generation medal and I'm not sure if there are even more.
I know of a British, Australian and Canadian version are there more then these three?
Interesting item all comment welcome.

Cheers, Bill

Never knew they existed. My favourite is the Remington piece. On my list now, as well!

I've researched these a little further and have collected photos on at least six different obverse matched with the same Four Generation medal.

That is pretty cool. Sounds like that would make for a nice set.

The eight versions of the "Four Heads" "Four Generations of the British Royal Family" that I know exist are as follows:

Dated 1896 32mm with Snowhill address
Dated 1897 21mm with abbreviated date and address
Dated 1897 32mm with Snowhill address (1896 die altered)
Dated 1897 32mm with H. Grueber & Co London
Dated 1897 32mm with Marsh Brothers Toronto
Dated 1897 38mm with Snowhill address
Dated 1899 21mm (different layout)
Dated 1900 38mm

I would be interested to know if any others exist.

There are differing metals and finishes. And there's also a gilt uniface variety. One I have yet to confirm is a Gruber Calendar Medal/4 Generations.
In addition, there are Bon Marche, Sydney, Australia.
W. S. Lincoln, stamp album publishers. Oxford St. London.
Earls Court Great Wheel.

I have the Pearcy's paint one, but it is badly worn, a pocket piece. I eventually should get one in better shape. These kinds make me laugh-An advertising token in the guise of patriotism. Quite clever, really.
