Ontario History Vol LII (1960) No. 1, "The Loyal and Patriotic Society of Upper Canada and its Still-Born Child - The Upper Canada Preserved Medal", Hamilton Craig
Bulliten, Vol. 33, No. 3, Dec. 1959. p.42.

Research Facts
After the outbreak of the War of 1812, the Loyal and Patriotic Society of Upper Canada was founded. In 1817, it had gold and silver medals struck in England to be distributed to the militia. Difficulty arose in selecting those to receive the medals. Also, controversy developed over the right of anyone other than the Sovereign to confer medals for military service. As a result, the medals were deposited in the Bank of Upper Canada and never awarded. They were melted down, and the sale of the metal added to the funding for the building of York-- now Toronto-- General Hospital.
