Congrats on the find.   I wish the picture were a little bigger so my old eyes could truly enjoy it, but at least the detail is sharp.  Is there anything on the back?

Unfortunately this medal was not recovered with a detector. The silver medal is rare and not often encountered. The bust of President Kruger appears on the reverse.
