I found this:

http://thedocksofhull.weebly.com/alexandra-dock.html

From that site:
"The dock was opened on Thursday, 16th July 1885 by the wife of Lt Colonel Gerard Smith. M.P. Chairman of the Hull & Barnsley Railway Company, who stood in for Princess Alexandra and the Prince of Wales who were unable to attend at the last minute."

So as an alternative to the 1869 visit, could this medal be commemorating something that never happened?

Yes that thought occurred to me too...it makes sense as the dock appears to have been named after her.

At least JenB's link has the couple facing the right way for Albert and Alexandra, so certainly them on some occasion.    (although having said that . . . .  in some other images on that link they are facing the other way . . . someone explain that to me please.  I thought rulers faced opposite ways as they succeeded.  i.e. Elizabeth's successor will face the other way, as did her father.)

Like Arthur's idea . . . .

I think the 'facing opposite ways' only applies to currency; I thought this was a souvenir.

The nose shapes look right for Albert and Alexandra

There was a visit by the Prince and Princess of Wales to Hull in July 1869 to open the Albert Dock. Widely reported in newspapers at the time.
Isobel

Now I have the chance to take a proper look without trying to do several things at once, I think that this is most likely to be the occasion that the coin was struck. It was named after Albert Edward.

Thanks Isobel for your help and to JenB for finding the image and others who joined the search  :D
