If you have access to the actual award cards it's sometimes possible to find with a lot of legwork. I was looking for one recently and narrowed the number down to a block between certain dates - I didn't find it and lost interest, but I think that's a possibility for you.

79147 was issued in 1921 and 79491 was also issued in 1921 - Safe bet that this medal was issued in 1921 but the recipient is unknown

I'm guessing that's a recent development?  Do you mind posting a link for the rolls,  as it's not included in the below.

No it’s been at least 2 years now that it has been up and running again.

 

Here’s the link:
