The Dies and Medals of the ANS.

.

I wish to thank Colin Thomas for sending me a list of the ANS Medals produced in Queensland.

The sale of Amor Sanders archives in 1997 resulted in the disposal of their dies and specimen collection.
The A.N.S. Dies were retrieve and photographed.

There are many one off medals for Best Displays etc. these have not been included in the list below.
This list is a record of the known medals produced for commemorative events or for sale to members. 
To qualify for this list there has to be more than one of each medal produced.
