    Having trawled through The Medal Yearbook and finding no trace of this one i think it probably comes under the heading of a commemorative medallion rather than a medal per se. Try posting it on the British Medal Forum and see if anyone there can provide any information about it. The disc is in good condition considering its been in the river all that time. Makes you wonder whether it was lost or thrown in when the palefaces broke a treaty or two.
