State: New South Wales, Australia
Issued on: Return
Date of presentation: 00/01/1901

Gold medals, to:

New South Wales Mounted Rifles –
unnamed volunteers
 

"The [New South Wales] Mounted Rifles who have returned by the Orient are to have a great reception, and each man will be presented with a gold medal" (Brisbane Telegraph, 07/01/1901).

A medal produced in such numbers would be seen as frequently as the Toronto medal. As none are known to have surfaced, it seems unlikely that this presentation was ever made.
