The Medallion

It has been a month since I blogged about something and on this 4th of July, I finally got something to write about.
I have been collecting different coins from different countries. But, I have never been to another country. Let me say, these coins will lead me to the countries I would visit in the future.
Then, one day, I got a medallion from my grandfather.Well, it actually looks like a coin so I asked for it. He gave it to me as a an exchange for something. 🙂 Well, I actually begged the medallion from him.

So here’s some pictures of the medallion.

the front view of the medallion


As you can see in this picture, which is the front view, there is something written at the upper part. It says Asiatic Pacific Campaign. I think the trees behind the 2 soldiers are palm trees or coconut trees.


the back view

And this is the back view. There is a picture of an eagle and the year written is from 1941 to 1945 (during the world war II).

So, this is the medallion I got from my grandfather. He actually kept it for several years since he found it in Leyte, Philippines (where the world war last ended).  I’m actually curious what this medallion is for. I was thinking of using it as a pendant but I think it would show disrespect to anybody I don’t know.

Do you have any information about this medallion? 🙂

I would be showing my other coins in my next blog. Thanks for reading and enjoy LIFE!!!
