2016 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Easter Rising and this stunning ¼ oz gold medal has been struck to proof quality to commemorate this historically significant event. This exquisite gold medal captures one of the key symbols of the seminal event in Irish history. The obverse depicts the General Post Office at the centre as it was the GPO that had set an impressive stage for the drama that was about to unfold in Easter Week 1916. It was the headquarters of the provisional government, and it was on the front steps of the GPO that Padraig Pearse read aloud the Easter Proclamation to a modes crowd of onlookers. The reverse of the Gold medal depicts the original 1916 Medal reverse design that features the Irish Gaelic inscription: “SEACHTAIN NA CASCA 1916”, which is translated to “Easter Week 1916.” The original 1916 medal was struck for the 25th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising, and at a special commemoration Parade on Easter Sunday 1941, the medals were awarded to those with proven military service during Easter Week.
