Looking back at medal prices 1980 - 1982 in old catalogues, a RD/iSandlwana medal back then would have cost £300 - £330 (no distinction between a RD defender or an iSandlwana casualty, and this just a 50% premium on a standard Zulu medal).
To put this in perspective, a RD/iSandlwana medal would have cost the same as a standard 3 bar Indian Mutiny (not an original Lucknow defender), the same as a 5 bar 1882 Egypt medal, the same as a Thin Red Line medal to the 93rd at Balaklava and the same as an Ava or Bhurtpoor bar to an Army of India medal.
A third of the price of a Light Brigade Charger.
Half of a Trafalgar bar NGSM.
Twice that of an average Waterloo medal.


Since then and over the past 30 years, in order of least to largest increase in value, if you had invested in a standard medal for:

Army of India (Ava or Bhurtpoor) it would have increased in value by approximately,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,3x
Queens Sudan, Boer War pair,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,4x
Military or Naval GSM 1793, Egypt 1882 (5 bar or Abu Klea) ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,5x
Waterloo,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,8x
Trafalgar Naval GSM,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,10x
RD/iSandlwana,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,25x
???????,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,100x

Special prize if you know 100x increase! (Hint: needs to be verified with documentation and in its standard group)

With the price of SAG medals still increasing dramatically, I am revising this old comparison.
Seem to be more medal collectors on this site than when I originally posted, so I have deleted the answer to the question I posed in the original thread, so if you have already seen the answer, you are not allowed to spoil the fun of the newer medal collecting members!
