Have searched the web and cannot find this particular coin anywhere, unlike the others from my Grandfathers collection which he collected on his journies during World War II.  Any information would be much appreciated.

ONE SIDE - S.AFRICA    Z.AFRIKA    1925
OPPOSITE SIDE - I assume it says Prince of Wales?
Cannont see any distinctive markings - not in very good condition

It is a medallion from South Africa, marking Edward VIII's (then the Prince of Wales) visit to South Africa. It sold at: http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item/17589162/1925_Edward_Prince_Of_Wales_South_Africa_Midallion.html  which can give you an idea of price.
I believe your medallion is missing some words on the obverse, but other than that it's in good condition. What a neat find!

Wow that was a quick response - thanks Ms, much appreciated.  Been searching for this coin for weeks, have quite a few other coins from my Grandfather's collection that I would like to know more about, will definitely be posting them.

Thanks M.S. that would be great, have a few others I can't seem to find, will take photos this weekend.  I see you registered on this sight in Dec, is this a new found hobby?  Is for me, found my Grandfather's collection in a box in my garage, forgot I had them, I'm hooked!

I've been interested for a couple years, lost interest, but got found my love for the hobby again around Dec. Your Grandfather must have traveled the world a lot. What kind of cool stuff have you found in his collection?
