The Sherlock Holmes Centennial Art Medal Collection: An Update

The Sherlock Holmes Centennial Art Medal Collection: An Update

Newcastle Mint order FormAfter publishing our January HolmeWork assignment on the Newcastle Mint, we came across this order form for the 12 medal series in the June 1987 issue of The Baker Street Journal (Vol. 37 No. 2 Page 80).

It’s interesting to note that they limited one set per subscriber, not a wise decision in hindsight. With this form, we also learn that there was to be a solid oak display frame as part of the set.  I’m curious if anyone ever got one of the display frames.

Also intriguing is that this medal set “was created especially for the Sherlock Holmes Society.”  Was this ad copy originally for the Sherlock Holmes Society of London?

  1. I can say with confidence that the Sherlock Holmes Centennial Art Medal Collection was not created for the Sherlock Holmes Society of London.
