The artist who designed the verso, Frederic Leighton, was President of the Royal Academy, and his dies were engraved from a 3-dimensional model with the help of a reducing machine. One of these 944 medals, issued from July 1887 to February 1889, is on display at the British Museum. Medal is goldrated EF to FDC. Diameter measures 2.25″. Weighs 84 grams.
