Cwmtillery Colliery Closure Medal 1850-1982.
Made from a Nickle type metal. Size 1 1/2″ inch diameter.
The problem with this medal is the date of sinking is incorrect, with Cwmtillery Colliery, no-one actually knew the correct date or the certainty of the original ownership etc but the recent access to the newspapers from the time states it was actually sunk in 1842. The closure date is correct.
I have added all the relevant information on all the local collieries in the “Collieries” section.
