Description

Royal Red Cross, R.R.C. 1st Class, VR Victorian Issue, in silver gilt and enamels.

 

Very rare, since the institution of the award in 1883, an initial minting of 100 was made, these badges presumably made in gold, another 112 Victorian R.R.C.’s were produced, 12 in 1899, 50 in 1900 and 50 in 1901, so only 112 of this silver gilt type were made and only 212 Victorian crosses being produced in total.
