Information additionnelle

Historique de la conservation
The National Medal Collection has existed from almost the outset of the creation of the Archives, with the first medal acquisition taking place in 1888. Until the 1950s, there was no systematic record of the provenance or source of most medals in the collection. In 1958, the numismatic part of the medal collection was transferred to the Bank of Canada for its eventual Currency Museum, and in 1966 some military and other medals of unknown provenance were transferred to the National Museums Corporation. In 1986, in an effort to bring the National Medal Collection under some sort of administrative control, the generic accession number 1986-79 was assigned to the collection of more than 10,000 existing medallic items. In 2000-2001, many of the medals which had been listed as part of 1986-79 were re-assigned their original medallic collection accession numbers based on a medal registry book kept from the 1950s onwards. However, this still left more than 3,700 "orphan" medals of unknown source or provenance, which are linked to this record.
