The Naval Good Shooting Medal was instituted by King Edward VII in August 1902. The Silver Medal was awarded annually beginning in 1903 to promote excellent gunnery performance in annual fleet competitions until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. The Medal was replaced in 1966 after 52 years of being unawarded by the Queen's Medal for Champion Shots of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Approximately 974 Medals were awarded.

A clasp inscribed with the date and name of the recipient's ship was awarded to denote subsequent success.

The Medal features Latin inscription on the reverse which translates to "Victory Loves Care."

The Medal differs by the obverse effigy of the reigning monarch.
