The Volunteer Officers' Decoration was instituted in July 1892. It was intended to reward efficient and capable officers of the Volunteer Force who had given 20 years' service. The Volunteer Force was the precursor of the Territorial Army (TA), and the decoration became obsolete when the TA was formed in 1908.

King George V's Coronation Medal was struck in 1911 to commemorate the coronation of HM King George V in that year.
