Queen Victoria Police Jubilee Medal
Queen Victoria's Commemoration Medal 1900 (Ireland), more commonly referred to as the Visit to Ireland Medal 1900, was awarded to those members of the Irish Police Forces on duty at Queen Victoria’s various engagements during her visit to Ireland in 1900.
Queen Victoria made a formal visit to Dublin between 3 and 27 April 1900. During this time she drove in state through the decorated streets of the city and carried out a number of official engagements. These included a celebration in Phoenix Park attended by 30,000 school children from across Ireland, and a review of troops from the Curragh garrison.
Following the example of the Queen Victoria Police Jubilee Medal, awarded for the Golden (1887) and Diamond (1897) Jubilees, a medal was sanctioned for award to those members of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Dublin Metropolitan Police who were on duty at engagements during Queen's visit. Additionally, members of the Civil Service Staffs of both Police Forces who were on duty at Dublin Castle during the visit received the medal.
A total of 2,285 medals were awarded.
The medal is bronze for all ranks, 1.4 inches (36 mm) in diameter and has a plain straight ribbon bar.
