Credit line
This little medallion was issued along with a commemorative booklet to celebrate the Taranaki Rugby Football Union's 50th jubilee. Although the Union was officially begun in 1889, Taranaki first developed a touring rugby team in 1885, and it was decided that this would be the date to mark the beginning of official rugby in Taranaki.
