Context

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Medal (Provincial) commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Accession of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second to the Throne as Queen of Canada. While no national medal was created on this occasion, several Canadian provinces created their own Royal commemorative medal, uniform in design, scope and intent and aligned with previous national programs for such anniversaries. The medals are administered by the various provinces which created them, namely Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Eligibility and criteria

The eligibility and criteria for each medal were established by each province which created a medal.

Some provinces have allocations dedicated to the CAF and have worked closely with local military authorities to select the most deserving CAF members, representative of the military demography in the province.

Description

A circular medal, silver in colour and 32 mm in diameter, bearing:

  • On the obverse, a contemporary crowned effigy of Her Majesty The Queen of Canada, facing right, circumscribed with the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA” and “CANADA”, separated by small maple leaves.
  • On the reverse, the shield of the awarding province surmounted by the Royal Cypher, on either sides of which appear the dates “1952” and “2022”, the provincial flowers appear on either side of the shield and, in the base, are inscribed the words “VIVAT” and “REGINA” meaning “Long Live The Queen”.

A 12 mm ring, which holds the ribbon, passes through a small hollow ball at the top of a claw joined to the top of the medal.
The ribbon is 32 mm in width with a white stripe in the centre, 2 mm in width, on each side of which are red stripes, 3 mm in width, followed by white stripes, 10 mm in width and blue edge stripes, 2 mm in width. This ribbon is a variation of the 1953 Coronation Medal, 1977 Silver Jubilee Medal, 2002 Golden Jubilee Medal and 2012 Diamond Jubilee Medal ribbons.
