Medal - Melbourne Exhibition Cantata 1880 or an Entry Pass (according to Mint)
Other Details: This is probably the silver medal issued to members of the Exhibition Choir. It has also been called an Entry Pass, perhaps it served both functions giving choir members access to the Exhibition. The harp at the base of the reverse olive wreath suggests the musical connection. This piece was retained for the Melbourne Mint reference collection.
A silver medal featuring a monogram of the letters 'MEC' and an olive wreath joined at the base by a small harp.
