It must be a celebration medal for Queen Victoria. She was born in 1819 and married in 1840 but what it celebrates I don't know unless more info. can be gleaned from the medal !

Its for the golden jubilee I think, I can just make it out the 1887 at the bottom of the picture.  I think it says crowned 1838 at the top.

...nice find, I think this one is a match. Not any information on it apart from it being an antique Queen Victoria jubilee commemorative medal
