The 1953 Coronation Medal was a commemorative medal made to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II awarded for community contribution. For Coronation and Jubilee medals, the practice up until 1977 was that United Kingdom authorities decided on a total number to be produced, then allocated a proportion to each of the Commonwealth countries and Crown dependencies and possessions. The award of the medals was then at the discretion of the local government authority, who were free to decide who got a medal and why.
A total of 138,214 medals were issued, including:
11,561 to Australians
12,500 to Canadians
