Fundraising Medallion

This is a small circular brass Boer War Fundraising Medallion. One side features the words ‘Rough Riders’ above the image of a soldier on horseback, over a scroll with the words ‘Kia Toa Ake Ake’. The other side reads ‘To commemorate the Departure of the NZ Rough Riders to the Transvaal 1900’.

Funds raised through the sale of this medallion will have been used to fund the efforts of the contingent.
