The 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's accession to the throne was marked by exuberant celebrations and a great number of commemorative wares. This medal was issued by the Art Union of London, an organisation that encouraged public interest in the arts and also celebrated its own Golden Jubilee in 1887.
