The Queen hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace on 12 October 2015 to mark the Rugby World Cup 2015. Attendees included senior members of the Royal Family, players from World Cup competing nations and rugby officials.
To mark the event we were asked by England Rugby to create a very special version of the Participants Medal. We produced a unique gold plated medal featuring a sleek black gold plated etching to the front with a red leather insert to the rear and presented in a solid oak gift box.
The royal gift
The medal body is machined from solid stainless steel and plated with hand polished 24k gold, with a truncated cone form to give it a muscular shouldered look. A polished black gold etching features the event mark on the front whilst a tooled royal red leather insert features the tournament script on the reverse.
A gift fit for the Queen, handmade in the UK.
