Solna Church (Swedish: Solna kyrka) is a so-called round church in Solna Municipality near Stockholm, Sweden. The oldest parts of the church are from the later 12th century, a Romanesque fortress church built in stone as a defensive stronghold of the village. Indeed, in this region of Sweden, Karelian raids were commonplace, as evidenced by the looting of the nearby town of Sigtuna in 1187. Although the church has retained most of its medieval exterior form, the church's interior decoration dates back to the 17th century. The building was restored in 1928. A beautiful commemorative silver medal.

Sweden, Medal by Lea Ahlborn commemorating the death of Queen Lovisa in Stockholm on March 30, 1871, pewter/tin 42 mm, weight 33.42 g., condition XF+, nice luster. Louise was born in August 1828 in the Hague, and was the daughter of Fredrik of the Netherlands and Louise of Prussia. She was chosen as a suitable wife for the Swedish heir to the throne, Karl (XV). Their wedding took place in June 1850 and her official name became Lovisa. In 1859, she became queen of Sweden and Norway. Lovisa and Karl XV were very different, and their relationship was never particularly happy. They had two children, of whom only their daughter reached adulthood. Lovisa devoted herself to charity work and was the patron and founder of several associations, such as a care home for sick children, a school for deaf children, and a society for the establishment of orphanages in Lapland.
