Charles Riley just issued a medal to to celebrate his 25 years in numismatic business and 10 years trading on his own. He worked at Glendining's 1990-1994 (mostly under Daniel Fearon and Chris Webb), followed by Baldwin's 1994-2005, then on his own account from 2005. It's free to buyers who make a purchase (see below for details), but may also be purchased. Nice. Happy anniversary!
To commemorate 25 Years in the numismatic business, and 10 Years working for myself I have issued the medal pictured above. The harpist was designed by renowned English medallist Joseph Moore, originally appearing on Welsh eisteddfod medals of the 1860s; I’ve adopted it as my logo. This and the Welsh language legend are a nod to my personal interest in Welsh medals as well as being a jocular reference to the medal’s metal content (it is a
gilded zinc-based alloy).
The diameter is 50mm.

Please note: I found it very difficult to photograph this medal. In my
opinion it appears much better in the flesh!
