Medals UK was commissioned to create the English National Ballet Commemorative Medal in 2017 and years previous. Founded in 1950, English National Ballet brings world-class classical ballet to the widest possible audience – delighting them with the traditional and inspiring them with the new. Each year the ballet company work with thousands of young people to inspire and promote personal creativity, commitment and innovation. The medal is gifted to talented young people who have participated in ENB performances of The Nutcracker and commemorates their achievement in dancing with such a prestigious dance company.
The medals measure 50.00mm and were produced in gold with a minted, frosted and polished finish that compliments the magical image on the obverse of two characters from classical ballet The Nutcracker. The reverse includes the words “I danced with the English National Ballet” alongside the year.
