This medal was awarded as a personal souvenir by King George V to commemorate his Silver Jubilee. It was awarded to the Royal Family and selected officers of state, officials and servants of the Royal Household, ministers, government officials, mayors, public servants, local government officials, members of the navy, army, air force and police in Britain, her colonies and Dominions.

A total of 85,234 medals were awarded, [1] including

The medal was worn with other coronation and jubilee medals, immediately after campaign and polar medals, and before long service awards. [3] Ladies could wear the medal near their left shoulder with the ribbon tied in the form of a bow. [4]
