Scope and content

Medal presented to Indian chiefs to commemorate Treaty Numbers 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
Year digit would be added following inscribed: "187"
Treaty digit would be added following inscribed "INDIAN TREATY NO"
This medal also used to replace the medal that had been struck as a replacement medal to commemorate Treaty 1 and Treaty 2. The original Treaty 1 and 2 medals had been deemed unsuitable and inferior, and the first replacement medals, which were silver plated, were also unsatisfactory as the plating quickly wore off. For examples of the original Treaty 1 and Treaty 2 medals, see 1986-79-1633, 1986-79-1635, and 1986-79-1636. For examples of the first replacement medals for Treaty 1 and Treaty 2, see 1986-79-1637 and 1986-79-1645.
For related wax impression see 1950-2-2M and 1950-2-3M. For related medal see 1964-1-1M
