This Albert Medal was manufactured by the Royal Mint. In the 19th century, it was manufactured by Phillips in London.

My g.g.grandfather Charles Baynham was awarded the Albert Medal 2nd.class,following the Tynewydd mining disaster in 1877.
I would love to leave evidence of that act to my grandchildren.
I understand you have some 5 such medals in your collection,any possibility that his my be amongst them?
Hoping to hear,
