Duke Of Edinburgh silver award badge (1970s) in very good condition. The silver badge is specifically for young people aged 15 and over, and the other tiers (bronze and silver) correspond to other age groups (14 and 16). The insignia is Prince Philip’s cypher on a chromium-plated and enameled background. This pin is from the 1970s and would be an ideal gift for a collector of royal memorabilia or similar.
The Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award Badge from the 1970s is a symbol of achievement within the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, a program that encourages personal development, physical fitness, community service, and outdoor exploration among young people. Earning the Silver Award Badge during this era involved completing challenging activities such as adventurous journeys, skills acquisition, physical fitness, volunteer work, and a residential project. This badge represents personal growth, community engagement, and a love for adventure, as well as its historical significance as part of Prince Philip’s legacy. It serves as a tangible reminder of the transformative journeys undertaken by youth during that time.

Due to the nature of our store, a great deal of research has gone into every item as we do not want to damage or change pieces that have historical significance in their current state. Therefore if any of our pieces are listed incorrectly, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Because we are a small, family-run business, at the moment our projects are relatively small scale and we cannot cater to extremely large custom orders. However, we pride ourselves on our finished products’ quality therefore will not sell objects in any other condition than advertised.
