Antique imperial Japanese medal. Step back in history with this rare Antique Imperial Japanese medal, a tangible reminder of the Korean Annexation. Established by Imperial Edict No. 56 in 1912, this bright gilt bronze medal commemorates Japan’s controversial integration of Korea in 1910, following a series of political maneuvers and conflicts that placed Korea under Japanese rule until 1945. The obverse features intertwining branches of the pawlonia and plum-imperial symbols of Japan and Korea-topped with the chrysanthemum crest, signifying the union. The reverse is inscribed with “Korean Annexation Commemorative Medal”, “Meiji 43rd year (1910)”, and the date of the annexation, “8th month 29th day”. This medal is not just a piece of memorabilia but a historical artifact that represents the complex and often painful ties between Japan and Korea. The ribbon, a watered silk in gold with white edges and a vermilion center, combines the national colors of Japan and the Imperial colors of Korea, symbolizing the controversial nature of the annexation. Don’t miss the chance to own a piece of history that speaks of an era that forever changed the course of East Asian politics. International Buyers – Please Note. Thank you for your understanding.
