A celebration in medals of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years as our monarch.

On the occasion of the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada, Canada has followed a long tradition of recommending to Her Majesty the institution of a commemorative medal to mark this auspicious milestone. Commemorative Medals of The Queen’s Reign in Canada, 1952-2012 examines in detail this element of the Canadian honours system.

This short and accessible work provides the reader with an interesting and informative study of the honours that have recognized nearly a quarter of a million Canadians over the past six decades. Fully illustrated in colour, the book recounts the history and development of the commemorative medals awarded during The Queen’s 60 years as monarch.

Christopher McCreery has served as an adviser to Canadian and Commonwealth governments on questions related to honours policy. His books The Canadian Honours System and The Order of Canada are the principle works on the history of the honours system in Canada. McCreery is private secretary to the lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia and is a member of the federal Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Committee. He lives in Halifax.
