Salvation Army centenary medal from the USA 
  Salvation Army: anniversary medal

In a variety of ways in 1965, the hundredth anniversary of The Salvation Army was honoured.
This Salvation Army medal was produced with the portraits of a male and female salvationist on the main side.

The medal is 68mm across and as such relatively large. It has a weight of 150 grams.


             
On the back, under the design of the globe is the inscription:

"THE SALVATION ARMY SERVES GOD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD BY HELPING PEOPLE"


and

"HITHERTO HATH THE LORD HELPED US"

1 Samuel 7:12

  Salvation Army centenary medal 
             
The same design of the two salvationists was used on other objects, for example on an American First Day Cover.
