This piece is listed in Whittlestone & Ewing, Royal Commemorative Medals 1837-1977 as W&E 4889. I would grade this piece Extremely Fine (Sheldon AU58) but I have provided high-resolution close up photos so you can decide on a grade for yourself. 

For uncertified coins I provide a grading opinion using both the UK descriptive system and the Sheldon scale (based on ANA Grading Standards and/or PCGS Photograde) which will be better known to my US customers. I offer a grading opinion as a courtesy, but please examine the high resolution close up photos carefully and decide on a grade for yourself.
