Hi there,
I have a cabin/house at my place and near the door it has a badge gold in colour that says: Gold Medallion Home State Electricity Commision of Victoria. I am interested in finding out any information you might have.

Museum Victoria Comment
Hi Paul - We asked a History and Technology curator, who gave us the following info:
There are a couple of other items online at MM 48995 and MM 9207 (see attached images). The SEC ‘Gold Medallion’ seems to date from about 1960-1970 and was a promotional awards scheme for homes fitted with the latest all-electric installations, many of which were marketed by the SEC itself.
