Prince Edward Island joined to the Canadian Confederation in 1873. The reverse of this medal commemorates the 100th anniversary of this event.

On the observe the eclipse is pictured, on the top the Sun, in the middle the shadow casting Moon, below the central line of eclipse over the map of island is drawn. The date of eclipse is also in the middle of the medal, the day of eclipse is engraved into the sun-shined limb of the Moon. At the bottom of the obverse the legend LOMBARDO may refer either to the medalist or the company who produced it.
