Pic of Me

This website is a work in progress. When completed, it will document more than 1000 commemorative medals of South African historical interest. The search feature will help you locate a particular medal or group of medals.

My name is Michael Laidlaw and I am the sole author. I am Scottish by birth but have lived in South Africa since 1977. You are welcome to contact me on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
