These records, kept at TNA, contain nominal rolls and category lists for the commemorative medal issued to celebrate the Silver Jubilee in 1977 to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of Elizabeth II's accession in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Those receiving the medals include civilians as well as those in the armed forces.  



The Medal is a personal award from the Queen to members of the Crown services and was awarded at the discretion of the local government and issued to members of the British government and Commonwealth including those people involved in trade, local services, entertainment, sports, the arts and volunteer workers. 30,000 were distributed in Britain, 1,507 in New Zealand, 6,870 in Australia, and 30,000 in Canada.



The medal like all other Coronation/Jubilee medals issued after 1887 has been classified as an official medal to be worn after gallantry and campaign medals, but before all decorations and medals for efficiency and long service.
