CGS 1899 Medal Authorized in 1899, this medal was issued to members of the Canadian and Imperial forces which had taken part in the suppression of the Fenian Raids and Riel’s First Rebellion. Approximately 17,000 medals were issued, the vast majority of which were to Canadians. It was awarded only to those who lived to claim the medal many decades after the events and the application period initially ending in 1907 was extended to 1928 resulting in almost 1,000 later issue medals.
