This is an auction for a medallion commemorating Dominion Day in 1907: the day on which New Zealand marked a further step in its independence from Britain.

It bears on the reverse this inscription:

"Presented to the children attending the schools of the nation: New Zealand Proclaimed a Dominion September 26 1907."

Thus every school child in New Zealand was given one, just as they would be again when a madallion was issued to commemorate the Royal Visit in 1953-54.

From Wikipedia:

"The Dominion of New Zealand (Maori: Te Tominiana o Aotearoa) was the historical successor to the Colony of New Zealand. It was a constitutional monarchy with a high level of self-government within the British Empire. New Zealand became a separate British Crown colony in 1841 and received responsible government with the Constitution Act in 1852. New Zealand chose not to take part in Australian Federation and became the Dominion of New Zealand on 26 September 1907, Dominion Day, by proclamation of King Edward VII. Dominion status was a public mark of the political independence that had evolved over half a century through responsible government. Just under one million people lived in New Zealand in 1907 and cities such as Auckland and Wellington were growing rapidly. The Dominion of New Zealand allowed the British Government to shape its foreign policy, and it followed Britain into the First World War..."

This medallion is 26mm in diameter and in very good condition.

The cost of shipping is $3.95.
