[Sidenote: ARRANGEMENT.]

MEDALS serve for two purposes, for the illustration of history and
as records of the contemporary state of art. Some series, like that
of Italy, have more interest for their artistic merit than their
historical import. This may also be said in a great degree of the
French medals; but in the English and Dutch series the interest
lies rather in the historical value than in the artistic qualities,
the medallic art of neither country attaining at any time any high
degree of excellence. The medals which are described in this Guide,
although to some extent examples of contemporary art, must therefore
be considered interesting chiefly as records and illustrations of
the history of England for a period of over three hundred years.
For this reason a classification of the medals by artists has not
been attempted, and a simple chronological order has been preferred.
This, however, has been relaxed in a few instances, as in that of the
personal medals, which for the most part are placed at the end of the
reign in which the persons portrayed flourished; and in a few cases
where it has been considered advisable to class together the medals
of a particular artist, in order that the merit of his work could be
better studied and compared. This has been done in the case of the
medals by Stephen of Holland, Simon Passe, and some of those by Thomas
and Abraham Simon. The military and naval decorations form a separate
series, and are therefore described at the end of the Guide; by this
means making the arrangement more useful to those who take special
interest in this particular branch. A small selection could, however,
only be made from the series in the Museum collection, on account of
the limited space for exhibition. In many cases where English medals
fail to illustrate important events, selections have been made from
the Dutch and other series in order to render the historical record as
complete as possible.


With very few exceptions, there are no medals of interest in the
English series dating before the reign of Henry VIII. During the
fifteenth century a few counters were struck, which directly or
indirectly refer to events in English history; but these are for the
most part of French work, and the medal which is placed first in this
Guide, although bearing the portrait of an Englishman, John Kendal, is
undoubtedly of Italian work, and was probably executed at Venice. The
Dassier series of the early sovereigns, being a production of the last
century, cannot be said to have a place in the early medallic records
of this country, and is not included in this exhibition. The series
of English medals may therefore be said to commence with the reign of
Henry VIII., of which period, besides a number of interesting jetons
and medalets, there are some well-executed medals of the King himself,
such as No. 3, his portrait evidently after a painting by Holbein,
another recording his supremacy over the Church (Nos. 4—5), and several
remarkable badges. There are also other medals, chiefly personal, which
bear the portraits of Sir Thomas More, Thomas Cromwell Earl of Essex,
Anne Boleyn, and Michael Mercator, himself a medallist as well as a
diplomatist. The short reign of Edward VI. gives but few examples, of
which two are exhibited, one bearing only a portrait of the king, which
appears to be a cast in lead from a silver plate; and the other, his
coronation medal, the type of which was taken from the "Head of the
Church" medal of Henry VIII. The only other interesting works of this
reign are the Christ's Hospital badges and medalets, the School having
been founded by Edward in 1553. Of Mary there is also little worthy
of note beyond some excellent portraits of herself and Philip, and a
medal which refers to the condition of England during her reign. These
were executed by Trezzo at Madrid, and are the first signed medals of
the English series. The illness of Elizabeth in 1572, her struggle
with the Papal party, as well as her acceptance of the protection
of the Netherlands, and the defeat and destruction of the Spanish
Armada, afforded subjects for commemoration. The medals relating to the
destruction of the Armada are certainly among the finest pieces ever
produced in England, and are good examples of the art of the time. The
period of Elizabeth ends with a series of medallic portraits by Stephen
of Holland, most of which bear the date 1562, and all apparently
executed about that year.

The undisputed accession of the House of Stuart to the English throne
and the peaceable reign of its first king limit the subjects for
medallic illustration. The medals of the reign of James are purely
personal, with few exceptions, such as the Gunpowder Plot (No. 45), and
the alliance between England, France, and the United Provinces, for
the protection of the latter against the power of Spain (Nos. 46—47).
The rest present us with several portraits of the King and of various
members of the royal family, and of leading personages, of whom are
the Marquis (afterwards Duke) of Buckingham, Richard Sackville Earl of
Dorset, Sir Thomas Bodley, founder of the public library at Oxford, and
others. There is also a series of royal badges, a species of memorial
which becomes much more general in the next reign. These are followed
by a selection of engraved portraits of royal personages and others by
Simon Passe, who excelled in this style of work.

There are no medals which indicate the early contest between Charles
I. and the Parliament, those which are issued before 1640 referring
for the most part to the royal family and to eminent persons, with
the exception of the Scottish coronation medals of 1633 and those
commemorating the settlement of the Dutch Fishery question in 1636.
After the Declaration of Parliament in 1642, when the country was
divided into two parties, a new era in its medallic history begins,
and medals are struck in extraordinary numbers. This continues during
the period of the Civil War, and, besides medals which record the
successes of both parties, there is a large number of Royalist and
Parliamentarian badges, with portraits of the generals and statesmen
on both sides. Fortunately, England at this time produced several
artists, whose works are fitted to take the first rank in the national
series. These artists were Thomas and Abraham Simon, who worked for the
Parliament, and Thomas Rawlins, who was in the service of the King.
The series of this reign ends with several examples of the badges worn
by those who sympathised with the royal cause and with a few medals
recording the King's death. With the period of the Commonwealth the
issue of royalist badges ceases, and for the next ten years the medals
are of the parliamentarian class. These consist of portrait medals
of the Protector, of his family, and of the leading statesmen and
generals, and also of military and naval rewards, for the most part
executed by the two Simons. The Dunbar medal (Nos. 149—150), which was
issued for distribution among those engaged in that battle, is the
first authorized military decoration known. It was struck by order of
the Parliament immediately after the engagement. Naval medals were also
issued on several occasions, the most important being those for Blake's
victories over the Dutch in 1653 (Nos. 155—158). The Commonwealth
series closes with several medals, English and Dutch, commemorating the
death of the Protector, and also with a few personal medals, chiefly by
the Simons.

The Restoration of Charles II. was an occasion not to be passed by
unnoticed by medallists, and of no event are there more medals, except
perhaps of the accession of William III. and Mary. Some anticipate the
restoration of the King, and others trace step by step his return from
Holland, his landing at Dover, the joy expressed by the people at his
return, and his coronation at Westminster. The unpopular cession of
Dunkirk is only recorded on medals issued in France by Louis XIV. or
on Dutch satirical medalets; but the well-contested engagements of the
subsequent struggle between England and Holland for the dominion of the
sea, and the close of the war by the Peace of Breda, are numerously
illustrated. Those which refer to the Peace of Breda were for the
most part executed in Holland, and are remarkable examples of the
Dutch medallic style of that time. Of the next war with Holland from
1672—1674, there are no English medals, and those relating to it which
are exhibited are French and Dutch. The alarm created by the growing
strength of the Catholic party and the discovery of the pretended
Popish Plot, with the murder of Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey and also the
Rye House Plot, form the subjects of the next group of medals (Nos.
233—238, 240). Of those of the 'Popish Plot' there is a remarkable
medal, which appears to be Dutch, and which gives in detail the
supposed circumstances connected with the murder of Godfrey. Many of
the portraits of the illustrious men who flourished during this reign
are the work of the two Simons, and were mostly executed soon after
the Restoration. The important events of the short reign of James II.
give much scope to engravers. Medals are shown recording the rebellion
of Monmouth and Argyll and its suppression, the attempt of James to
re-establish the Roman Catholic religion by the repeal of the Test
Act, the imprisonment of the Seven Bishops, and lastly the invitation
to William of Orange, with the abdication and flight of James, his
queen and son. On these latter medals frequent allusions are made to
the supposed illegitimacy of the young Prince. The series of plots
and rebellions which followed the flight of James are for the most
part recorded by medals struck by the Stuarts abroad (Nos. 292—319):
these were issued for distribution among those who sympathised with
the exiled house. The medals which bear the portraits of James II. and
his son are supposed to have been presented to those who visited them
in their exile. No. 311, on which the rule of the House of Hanover is
satirized, is one of the medals struck for the purpose of rousing the
adherents of the House of Stuart into action; whilst No. 315 refers
to the rebellion of 1745, and the next medal to the secret visit of
the Younger Pretender to London in 1752, when he was again planning
an invasion. The series ends with a medal setting forth the claims of
Henry Duke of York as Henry IX. to the throne of his grandfather.

With the Stuart family are specially connected the medalets which are
called touch-pieces (Nos. 320—324). The custom of touching by the
sovereigns of this country for the cure of scrofula or 'the King's
evil' appears to have existed since the reign of Edward the Confessor.
At first the practice was rare, but in course of time it increased to
such an extent that it is said Elizabeth's 'healings,' which were at
first monthly, became of daily occurrence, and many thousands were
touched. The power was not claimed by Cromwell; but at the Restoration
it was revived, and Charles touched during his reign over 90,000
applicants. It was also much practised by James II., but repudiated
by William III. It was again revived by Anne, who was the latest
sovereign to perform the ceremony, and among the last of those whom she
touched was the afterwards celebrated Dr. Johnson. The Elder Pretender
claimed the power, and so did his sons Charles and Henry, the former
having exercised it in the name of his father at Edinburgh during the
rebellion of 1745. It was during the reign of Henry VII. that the
presentation to each applicant of a small piece of gold attached to a
band of white ribbon was first generally introduced. The angel was the
piece given, partly because it was the smallest gold coin struck and
partly on account of a certain fitness of type and inscription, having
on one side the archangel Michael overcoming the dragon, and on the
other side a ship in the sea and the inscription 'Per crucem tuam salva
nos Christe Redemptor.' The coin remained of the same type during the
reigns of Elizabeth, James I., and Charles I.; but the inscription in
each case was changed. At the Restoration, when the angel was no longer
issued as a current coin, Charles II. ordered medalets of similar type
to be struck, bearing the inscription 'Soli Deo gloria.' On account of
the attendance at the 'healings' having so largely increased, these
medalets are much less in weight and size than the angel. James II. was
the first king to strike the medalets in silver as well as in gold;
which were scarcely half the size of Charles II.'s. The Elder Pretender
as James III. also struck them in gold and silver. There are no pieces
known of Charles Edward; but of his brother the Cardinal, as Henry IX.
there are specimens in silver. The medalet given by Anne is of gold and
somewhat larger than that of James II.

The medals of William and Mary and of Anne are the most numerous
and historically the most complete of the English series. This may
be attributed to the stirring events due to the connection of the
interests of England and Holland and to the number of active medallists
of Holland and Germany.

The journey of William to England, his landing at Torbay, his
subsequent coronation and the flight of James, are illustrated by a
number of medals of which interesting examples are described in this
Guide. The rebellion in Ireland, with the battles of the Boyne and
of Aghrim, and the capture of towns, next follow. The events of the
war with France, concluded in 1697 by the Peace of Ryswick, produced
medals, English, Dutch, and French, recording the naval battle of La
Hogue, the taking of Namur by the French and the retaking of that city
by William, the defeats of William at Steinkirk and Landen, for which
his own countrymen held him up to ridicule (No. 390), the unsuccessful
attempt on Brest, the bombardment of Havre and Dunkirk, and the taking
of Huy. The other events commemorated by the medals are the passing of
the Toleration Act in 1689, the regency of Mary, the return of William
to Holland, the death of Mary, the Darien expedition, and lastly the
death of William.

The War of the Spanish Succession, which had begun shortly before the
death of William, was even more fruitful in medals than the previous
conflict with France. For the events of the campaigns of the Duke
of Marlborough and of Prince Eugene of Savoy in the Netherlands and
Germany, and of that in Spain, as well as for the naval victories,
the reader must be referred to the descriptions given at pp. 89—104.
A few other events, which happened during the reign of Anne and to
which medals refer, are the establishment of the Queen Anne's Bounty,
the Union of England and Scotland in 1707, the attempted invasion of
Scotland by the Elder Pretender in 1708, and the trial of Sacheverell.

With the accession of the House of Hanover the medallic series of
England loses much of its interest. The affairs of England and Holland
being no longer so closely united, the Dutch artists ceased to execute
medals for England, and at that time there were few medallists in this
country. The series therefore from this period is far less complete and
of very inferior style and work. The only important events recorded by
the medals of George I. are the Jacobite rebellion in Scotland in 1715,
the war of the Quadruple Alliance, and the siege of Gibraltar.

The first ten years of George II. are also devoid of medallic interest,
and it is not until the outbreak of the war of the Austrian Succession
that we have a piece of any merit. The best medals of this period
are those of the battle of Dettingen executed by Haesling and of the
battle of Minden by Holtzhey, a native of Amsterdam. Other recorded
events of this reign are the taking of Porto Bello and the attempt
on Carthagena by Admiral Vernon (of these events there are more than
a hundred different medalets), and the Jacobite rebellion under the
Younger Pretender, 1745—6. There is also a series of medals issued by
the Society for the Promotion of Arts and Commerce, commemorating the
conquest of Canada and the successes of the forces of England in India.
In portrait-medals the most important are the works of Dassier, of whom
mention has already been made.

The medals which illustrate the long reign of George III. down to the
battle of Waterloo in 1815, at which point this exhibition closes,
will be found to record all that is of importance during that period.
The events are so numerous and varied that the reader must be referred
to the descriptions, which will be found at pp. 113—130. The greater
portion of the medals relate to the struggle of England with her
American colonists, and to the subsequent wars with France, Spain,
and Holland, by sea and land. Following these are several pieces
commemorating some of the battles of the Peninsular War, and bearing
portraits of the principal generals, and a few personal medals of
statesmen and others, among whom may be noted Washington and Benjamin
Franklin. The series of historical medals closes with one of the finest
productions of the art of modern times, the Waterloo medal, designed
and executed by Pistrucci, a work of 'surpassing size and beauty,' on
which the artist spent a great portion of his life.


The selection of military and naval medals commences with that struck
for the battle of Culloden, those which were issued before that period
being included in the general series. The earliest pieces which belong
to this class are probably the Armada medals; their variety, their oval
form, as well as the circumstance that most have rings for suspension,
and some have still chains attached to them, leaving little doubt but
that they were intended as decorations. There is, however, no record
that they were issued by authority. Charles I. is said to have granted
in 1643 medals to soldiers who distinguished themselves in forlorn
hopes; and the numerous badges issued during the Civil War by the
King, and the Royalist and the Parliamentary generals were undoubtedly
intended as military rewards and distributed among the soldiers who
fought under them. No. 106, which was issued by Fairfax after the
battle of Naseby, could only have served for such a purpose. During the
Commonwealth the practice of bestowing decorative medals, both military
and naval, became more frequent, and on several occasions was ordered
by the Parliament. Of such medals is that distributed to all engaged
at the battle of Dunbar (Nos. 149—150), and also those for Blake's
victories over the Dutch, as well as several others.

Occasionally during the reigns of Charles II. and James II. military
rewards were issued; but as none of these have rings for suspension,
they cannot be considered as decorative medals. After the Commonwealth
the medal for Culloden seems to be the first decorative piece: but even
of this medal there is no record of its having been distributed by
authority. Of that battle there is also a circular medal with loop in
copper, the type being the Duke of Cumberland on horseback, which might
also have served for distribution.

Again a long period elapses during which no decorative medals appear;
and the victories of the Nile and Trafalgar would have remained
unrewarded, but for the munificence and patriotism of two Englishmen,
Alexander Davison and Matthew Boulton (see Nos. 539 and 544). In 1784
the East India Company acknowledged the services of its troops by
awarding a medal for the campaign in the West of India, an example
which originated a custom; and from that time, as long as India
remained under the control of the Company, medals were awarded for all
subsequent wars. The first medal issued by authority in England in this
century is that given for the battle of Waterloo. It was conferred
by order of the Prince Regent upon every officer and private present
at that battle; but no acknowledgment was made of all the brilliant
engagements in the Peninsular War till 1847, when a medal was issued
for military services between the years 1793—1814 (No. 592). At the
same time a corresponding medal for naval services was ordered to be
struck for all naval engagements during the same period.

Since the accession of her Majesty medals have been awarded for every
campaign, as well as others for 'meritorious service,' 'long service,'
&c. Besides the medals issued by the authority of the Crown and those
of the East India Company, there are a number of Regimental medals,
of which some are exhibited. These were struck at the expense of the
officers of the regiments for distribution among those who served under
them; but this custom ceased when a public acknowledgment was paid to
the services of the army.

The medals issued by the East India Company, being mostly of Indian
work, have been classed separately, and will be found at the end of the
series. As they were generally awarded only to Native troops, they are
for the most part very scarce.


Before proceeding to give some account of the medallists[1] themselves,
it may be useful to state shortly in what manner they accomplished
their work. This was done in four different ways, by casting, by the
repoussé process, by engraving, and by striking. Specimens of all kinds
of work will be found in this exhibition.

[1] Biographical notices of the medallists, whose works are exhibited,
are given with the descriptions of the medals. These can be found by
reference to the Index of Artists at p. 143.

In the case of casting, a method which was first adopted in Italy in
the fourteenth century, the mode was sometimes elaborate. A model
having been made in wax, it was painted over several times with layers
of cement made of fine earth or charcoal stiffened with some kind of
lye, until this dried and hardened upon the wax, and the foundation
of a mould was formed. When the mould was finished and completely
hardened, the wax was melted out, and the medal was then cast in some
hard metal, gold, silver, or copper, or in lead. By this process the
first mould was destroyed, and all subsequent ones had to be taken from
the medals themselves; consequently in time, with each fresh casting,
they became less sharp and perfect. Another method of casting was,
after executing a model in wax, to make moulds from it in sand, in
which the medal was then cast. By this means the original mould was
not destroyed, and would serve for use any number of times. But these
casts were not so successful as those made after the Italian method;
and in order to remove from the surface the roughness of the casting,
the medals were then submitted to the medallist's or goldsmith's hands
to be chased. In this manner a smooth and sharp surface was obtained;
but the chasing required to be very skilfully done. The castings in
lead on account of the softness of the material took a much more even
surface than in the case of the harder metals, and rarely required any

The process of repoussé work in its first stage was somewhat similar to
casting. A model was made in wax, from which a mould in a hard metal
was cast, and on this hard mould was placed a thin silver or copper
plate, which was then beaten into the mould with a hammer till it
received its final form. This process was a long and difficult one, and
required much skill; consequently the number of repoussé medals is very
small as compared with those which were cast. Repoussé work had one
great advantage, that of obtaining a high relief, and on good medals, a
striking effect. Not unfrequently, especially in Germany, the mould was
made of wood, and the plate then hammered into it; but this method was
not so satisfactory, as the degree of sharpness was much lessened.

The process of engraving was more simple; but perhaps not less
difficult. The medals were executed by direct incision with the graver
or dry point on a plate of silver or steel, and thus every line told,
and the excellence of the work depended upon the accuracy and sharpness
of the outline.

In the case of struck medals, the die was engraved or cut in steel,
which was hardened, and from which proofs were struck in gold, silver,
copper, &c. This process was not at first successful, as the mode of
striking was simply by the hammer, by which means sufficient force
could not be obtained. This was, however, obviated by the invention of
the screw, which was first adopted in the sixteenth century, but did
not entirely supersede the use of the hammer until the middle of the
seventeenth century. Medals are now as a rule produced by striking.

[Sidenote: MEDALLIC ART.]

Of the medallists who worked during the reign of Henry VIII. we know
nothing, and none of the medals bear the artists' signatures. The
process employed was that of casting; but this was often done with
little skill, and in consequence all the medals are highly chased. The
medals of the reign of Edward VI. show no improvement in the art; but
those of Mary and Philip, which are exhibited, being executed by the
Italian artist Trezzo, are of far superior work. It is scarcely fair
to class these among English medals, as they were executed in Madrid
under the orders of Philip II., in whose service Trezzo was retained
during the greater part of his life. That the works of this artist were
much esteemed in his own time we learn from Vasari, who says, 'This
master has no equal for portraits from life, and is an artist of the
highest merit in other respects.' During the reign of Elizabeth, a
great improvement is manifest in medallic art, which may be seen in the
medals commemorating the defeat of the Spanish Armada, all of which, so
far as it is known, were produced by native artists. There are other
fine medals of this reign; but these are the work of foreign artists.
Of such is the remarkable one with the portrait of Mary Queen of Scots
by Primavera, and also a number of Dutch medals, among which are the
splendid life-like portraits by Stephen of Holland. These medals are
all cast and afterwards chased, and are certainly very fine examples
of Dutch art. It is not improbable that this artist first studied at
Nuremberg, which was the great school for medallists in Germany, and in
which Albert Dürer himself had worked.

The medals of James I. are for the most part of Dutch work; and as
few are signed, we are unable to ascertain by whom the majority were
executed. As at this period the new invention of the screw for striking
coins and medals was coming into general use, there are in consequence
a number of struck medals. The engraved portraits of the royal family
and others, classed at the end of the series of James I., are by Simon
Passe. This artist worked chiefly with the graver in a neat clear
style, which possesses much originality. His works have great merit in
their class, especially his portraits, many of which were taken from
life, and are remarkable for their precision and sharpness of outline.
Besides these medals Passe executed frontispieces and bookplates, which
are also well engraved. The abundant medals of the reign of Charles I.
and of the Commonwealth were chiefly produced by three artists, Thomas
Simon, his brother Abraham, and Thomas Rawlins. We must add to these
the works of Nicholas Briot, who by his new invention of the balance
for striking coins and medals had rendered great service to medallic
art. His medals as well as his coins are all remarkable for their
clearness of design and sharpness of execution. Briot did not reside in
England after 1633, so that all his works date from the early part of
Charles's reign. There are also a few medals by Jean Varin or Warin,
who with George Dupré ranks first among French medallists. His medals
are always cast, and generally in high relief. Of the two Simons it
may be truly said that they stand first as English medallists, the
beauty of their work having never been equalled in this country. As
portraits the personal medals are faithful and expressive. The brothers
produced joint as well as separate medals: in the case of a joint work
Abraham appears to have made the model, whilst Thomas, who was a more
skilful engraver, did the after-chasing. From an example in the British
Museum, it is evident that the Simons first made their models in wax,
and from these or from moulds in sand then cast their medals. The work
of Thomas Simon was not confined to medals, for he executed all the
Seals for the Commonwealth and for Charles II., as well as a fine set
of coins which bear the portrait of the Protector. His last work of
this kind, the Petition Crown of Charles II., has never been equalled
in technical delicacy of execution, and is certainly the finest coin
of modern times. Thomas Rawlins cannot be mentioned in such high terms
as the Simons. His work was far above the average; but it failed to
attain the sharpness and high finish which characterise that of his
two rivals. Some of his coins are perhaps superior to his medals.
Mention may be made here of the work of two other artists, specimens of
whose medals will be found exhibited among those of Charles II. These
are Pieter van Abeele and Müller, whom Bolzenthal calls 'der Meister
Müller,' two Dutch medallists who worked in the repoussé style before
and during the reign of Charles II. The medals of these artists are
in high relief, and are executed with marked skill. Some of them are

At the Restoration Rawlins was reinstated in the place of Chief
Engraver to the Mint which he had held before the Commonwealth; and as
his attention appears to have been chiefly directed to the coinage,
there are very few medals by him after this time. It was not so with
Thomas Simon, who was specially engaged to prepare dies for the new
Seals, for he continued to work at his medals and produced a large
number, including several for the coronation. There are some medals
(Nos. 182—183), executed by him in anticipation of the Restoration,
which were probably made with the object of retaining through the merit
of his work the post of Chief Engraver, to which he had been appointed
by Cromwell. In this he did not succeed, but was transferred from the
Mint to the Office of Seals. Abraham Simon also continued to work for
some time after the Restoration; but he held no official post. In the
meanwhile a new set of artists had sprung up in England, who with few
exceptions monopolised the medallic work in this country during the
reign of Charles II. These are the Roettiers, who had been introduced
to Charles during his stay in Holland, and of whom there were three
brothers, John, Joseph, and Philip. It is of the eldest brother, John,
that we have the most numerous and finest works. The character of the
medals of this period differs very much from those of the Commonwealth.
They are always struck, as the new invention of Briot had now quite
superseded the hammer, and are in low relief. The execution of the work
is good, the medals being very sharply cut and the portraits full of
expression, whilst the reverses have a more picturesque style, somewhat
approaching that of the Italian medals of the sixteenth century, but
in lower relief. The only other medallist of this period who calls for
notice is George Bower or Bowers, the style of whose work is similar to
that of the Roettiers, although not of such good execution and finish.
John Roettier and Bower still continued to work during the reign of
James II., and during a portion of that of William and Mary; but with
the accession of William, the Dutch period of medallic art in England
began and continued till the death of Anne. The artists of this time
are very numerous, but only the chief ones need be here enumerated, who
are Jan and Martin Smeltzing, brothers, Jan Luder, Jan Boskam, Georg
Hautsch, and Jan Crocker or Croker. This last artist not only executed
a large series of medals, but he also cut all the dies for the coinage
of Anne as well as many of that of George I. and George II. The style
of the medals of the Dutch period is somewhat similar to that of the
Roettiers, the relief being still lower. The reverse designs are also
often picturesque, and, although minute in design, are usually distinct
and in good perspective.

The accession of the House of Hanover introduced into England some
German artists; but few of them are of any note. Of the medallists
who worked in England from the accession of George I. to the end of
the last century, are J. A. Dassier, who executed the large series of
medals of English Sovereigns from William I. to George II.; Richard
Yeo, who made the Culloden medal; Thomas Pingo, who made the Gibraltar
medal of 1782, and several medals for societies; C. H. Küchler, who
executed the Nile and Trafalgar medals; and J. G. Hancock, whose works
are very numerous.

Medallic art of the present century in England owes all its merit to
the work of Pistrucci, an Italian who came to this country in 1815
and remained here till his death in 1855, and to the work of the Wyon
Family. To Pistrucci we are indebted for the famous Waterloo Medal,
for many medals of learned societies, and for some of our finest
coin-dies; and to the Wyons, for the military and naval medals as well
as for a most extensive series of academical and other pieces. Since
the resignation by Pistrucci of the office of Engraver to the Mint, the
Wyons have held that post and have produced the greater portion of the
dies for coins.

In concluding this sketch of medallic art in England, some mention
should be made of the efforts of several public-spirited firms, which
at the beginning of the present century produced series of medals
commemorating some of the great events of English history at that time.
The most important of these is the series of National Medals of James
Mudie, on which work a number of foreign as well as native artists were
employed; and it is remarkable that these engravers include eminent
French medallists who commemorated the English successes in the wars
with France.

My acknowledgments are due to Mr. A. W. Franks, F.R.S., for much
assistance, and for the use of his valuable notes on Mr. Edward
Hawkins' unpublished work referred to in the Preface; and also to the
Hon. C. W. Fremantle, C.B., Deputy-Master of the Mint, to Mr. L. C.
Wyon, and to Mr. A. B. Wyon, for important information and suggestions.

Sir Thomas More, born 1480, was appointed Keeper of the Great Seal
1529; beheaded 6 July, 1535. The reverse typifies More under the form
of a cypress, which has fallen under the stroke of the axe, but whose
odour has thus become more fragrant.

This medal draws a parallel between the death of St. Thomas à Becket
and Sir Thomas More, both champions of their faith, and both put to
death under royal displeasure.

In 1528 Michael Mercator, or, as Sir Thomas More in writing to Wolsey
calls him, Michael the Gueldrois, was sent to Henry VIII. by Mons. de
Ysselstein, on a confidential mission respecting the affairs of the
Low Countries. Again in 1538 in two letters of Floris d'Egmont, Count
of Buren and Lord of Ysselstein, one to Henry VIII. and the other
to Cromwell, we find him requesting the kind reception of Michael
Mercator. These letters also refer to Mercator's artistic skill, and we
learn from Puteanus or Du Puy that he excelled in medallic portraits,
and that this medal, which is of contemporary workmanship, was executed
by himself. It was on this second visit to England that he received the
order of Knighthood from the King.

    12. Another. Similar: bust in profile l., and reverse
    inscription in relief. Lead. Size 1·8. Cast.

EDWARD VI. 1547—1553.

    13. Portrait, 1547. _Obv._ Half-length figure of King l.,

    other in Greek of the same import as that on obverse; above,
    _Lambhith_, i.e. Lambeth. Gold. Size 2·35. Cast and chased.

The first coronation medal executed in England. The inscriptions are
similar to those on the medals of Henry VIII., struck to commemorate
his supremacy over the church. (Nos. 4-5.)

MARY. 1553—1558.

(Medals by Giacomo da Trezzo.[2])

[2] Giacomo da Trezzo, sculptor, engraver and medallist, born at
Milan at the beginning of the sixteenth century, first worked in the
execution of medals for the Gonzaga family. He afterwards entered the
service of Phillip II. of Spain, went to Madrid and was engaged in the
decoration of the Escurial. He died at Madrid in 1589.

    15. Condition of England, 1554? _Obv._ Half-length figure
    of Queen l., wearing coif with veil, embroidered gown,
    pendant pearl, &c. MARIA I. REG. ANGL. FRANC. ET HIB. FIDEI
    DEFENSATRIX. IAC. TREZ. _Rev._ Mary, as Peace, seated r.,
    holding olive branch and palm, and burning instruments of war;
    behind, group of suppliants; in distance, circular temple.
    CECIS VISVS TIMIDIS QVIES. Copper. Size 2·6. Cast and chased.

The design on the reverse of this medal is probably emblematic of the
condition of England. By Evelyn and others it was supposed to refer to
the suppression of Wyat's rebellion, and to the encouragement given
to the Papal party. It was probably executed by Trezzo during his
residence at Madrid.

    16. Portraits of Mary and Philip, 1555. _Obv._ Half-length
    figure of Queen l., same as preceding. _Rev._ Half-length
    figure of Philip II., king of Spain r., in armour. PHILIPPVS
    REX, &c., IAC. TREZZO F. 1555. Copper-gilt. Size 2·6. Cast and

This medal was executed some little time after the marriage of Mary and
Philip in 1554.

    17—18. Another. _Obv._ Bust of Queen l., wearing coif with veil
    and embroidered gown. MARIA I. REG. ANGL. &c. _Rev._ Bust of
    Philip r., in armour. PHILIP. D. G. HISP. REX. Gold and silver.

    of pearls, large ruff, &c. Inscr. of Garter. _Rev._ Ornamented
    shield, royal arms supported by angel. Inscr. of Garter.
    Silver. Oval. Size 1·9. Cast and chased.

Probably executed for presentation on special occasions.

    20. "Phœnix Badge," 1574. _Obv._ Bust of Queen l., wearing
    pearls in hair, ruff, &c. ELIZABETHA D. G. ANG. &c. Around—

    "Hei mihi quod tanto virtus perfusa decore"
    "Non habet eternos inviolata dies."

    _Rev._ Phœnix amid flames: above, monogram of Queen, crowned,
    and 1574 engraved roughly; around,

    "Felices Arabes, mundi quibus unica phœnix"
    "Phoenicem reparat depereundo novam"
    "O miseros Anglos, mundi quibus unica phœnix"
    "Ultima fit nostro, tristia fata, solo."

    Silver. Size 1·75. Cast and chased.

The legends may indicate the apprehension for the Queen's life
occasioned by the severe plague, which visited London in 1574.

    21. Defeat of the Spanish Armada, &c., 1588—9. _Obv._ Bust
    of Queen in high relief, facing, crowned, wearing high ruff,
    &c., and holding sceptre; and orb. DITIOR IN TOTO NON ALTER
    CIRCVLVS ORBE. _Rev._ Bay-tree uninjured by lightning on
    inhabited island inscribed, NON IPSA PERICVLA TANGVNT: border
    of leaves. Gold. Oval. Size 2·35. Cast and chased; with ring
    for suspension.

This medal records not only the defeat of the Spanish Armada, but
also the averting of other dangers which at that time threatened both
England and her Sovereign. The Queen of Scots was dead; James of
Scotland had been conciliated; the Duke of Guise was dead, and France
and the Vatican were baffled. The bay-tree was deemed incapable of
injury from lightning.

    22—23. Another. Similar: on obverse, bust of Queen, three
    quarters l., without sceptre and orb, and on reverse, E. R.
    in field, and no buildings on island. Gold and silver (with
    original chain). Size 1·9. Cast and chased; with ring for

    24. Another. _Obv._ Similar: bust of Queen l., with pearls in
    hair, ELIZABETH. D. G. ANGLIE, &c. _Rev._ Ark in waves; above,
    sun. SEVAS (sic) TRANQVILLA PER VNDAS. Silver. Size 2. Cast and
    chased; with ring for suspension.

This medal refers only to the defeat of the Spanish Armada. The English
flag-ship was called the "Royal Ark," which may have suggested the
reverse type.

    25. Another. _Obv._ Pope, kings and others seated in council,
    with eyes bandaged; floor covered with spikes; above, O COECAS
    STIMVLOS CALCITRARE. (Acts ix. 5.) _Rev._ Fleet driven on
    rocks; above, VENI VIDE VIVE. 1588; around, TV DEVS MAGNVS ET
    MAGNA FACIS TV SOLVS DEVS. (Ps. lxxxvi. 10.) Silver. Size 2.
    Struck. Dutch.

The obverse satirizes the confederation formed against Elizabeth by
the Pope, the King of Spain, the Emperor, and others; the reverse
represents the defeat of the Armada.

    26. Another. _Obv._ Naval engagement, destruction of Spanish
    fleet. FLAVIT ET DISSIPATI SVNT. 1588; above, Jehovah, in
    Hebrew. _Rev._ Church on rock amid stormy waves; beneath,
    shield, arms of Prince Maurice crowned. ALLIDOR NON LÆDOR.
    Silver. Size 2. Struck. Dutch.

The destruction of the Armada was due in great measure to the violence
of a storm. As this medal bears the shield of Prince Maurice, it is
probable that it was struck by his direction in Holland.

    27. Mary, Queen of Scots, 1567? _Obv._ Bust r., wearing
    cap with veil, ruff, &c. MARIA STOVVAR REGI. SCOTI. ANGLI.
    IA. PRIMAVE. Reverse plain. Copper. Size 2·5. Cast. By G.

[3] Very little is known of Giacomo Primavera beyond what information
is supplied by his medals. He was of Italian origin, perhaps Milanese,
and was born before the middle of the sixteenth century. He appears to
have worked chiefly in France and the Netherlands, as nearly all his
medals bear portraits of personages of those two countries. The above
medal was probably executed from a portrait, as it does not appear he
was ever in Scotland. He died about the beginning of the 17th century.

This medal presents us with a remarkable portrait of Mary Queen of
Scots, and is the work of Giacomo Primavera. Its date is uncertain, but
judging from other existing portraits of Mary, it was probably executed
about the same time as the Morton portrait, which was painted by order
of Mary during her imprisonment in Lochleven Castle, 1566—67. There are
modern casts of this medal, to which a reverse has been added. (See
guide to Italian medals, No. 181.)

    28. Richard Shelley, 1577. _Obv._ Half-length figure r., in
    armour with cross of Knights of St. John on breastplate.
    issuing from clouds holding shield with crest, arms of Shelley.
    PRO FIDE SPOLIATI CLYPEVS OBSES. Copper. Size 2·75. Cast and
    chased. Italian work.

Sir Richard Shelley born in 1514 was a Knight of Malta, Grand Prior of
England, and as Turcopelier, took part in the defence of Malta against
the Turks in 1565. He died abroad, probably at Venice, where this medal
appears to have been executed.

    29. Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, 1587. _Obv._ Bust,
    three-quarters l., wearing cap and armour much ornamented.
    ROBE. CO. LEIC. ET IN BELG. GVBER. 1587. _Rev._ Sheep in flat
    country, dog leaving them; under dog, INVITVS DESERO; around,
    NON GREGEM SED INGRATOS. Silver. Size 1·85. Cast and chased.

Leicester, being superseded in the command of the combined armies of
the English and Protestants of the United Provinces by Maurice second
son of the Prince of Orange, left the country in disgust. This and
the following medals were probably executed for Leicester before his
departure from Holland.

    30. Another. Similar: type varied, sheep in hilly country, &c.
    Silver. Size 1·85. Cast and chased. Dutch.


[4] Stephen of Holland, like Primavera, is only known by his medals.
From these we gather that he worked at first in Holland, executing many
medallic portraits of his countrymen. He was also in the employ of
Sigismund, King of Poland. He resided for a short period in England,
where he produced a large number of portrait-medals of private persons.
These are for the most part dated 1562.

William Herbert, statesman and soldier, son of Sir Richard Herbert,
elected K.G. in 1548, and created Earl of Pembroke in 1551. He died in
1570. The Earl's badge was a green dragon, which may have suggested the

Sir Thomas Stanley, third son of Thomas Stanley of Dalgarth in
Cumberland, was one of the assay masters of the mint during the reigns
of Henry VIII. and Edward VI., appointed controller by Elizabeth, and
Master 1573. He died 1576.

    35. Richard Martin and his wife Dorcas Eglestone, 1562. _Obv._
    Bust of Martin r., wearing bonnet, cloak, &c. RICHARD MARTIN.

From the 'visitation' of Hertfordshire 1579 it would appear that this
lady was one of the daughters of Clement Newce of Much Hadham, citizen
and mercer of London, who died in 1579.

JAMES I. 1603—1625.

    38. James, as King of Scotland. Marriage, 1590. _Obv._ Bust

after his death.[5]

[5] Jean Warm or Varin, born at Liege 1604, studied at a very early age
painting, especially portraiture, and the art of engraving, placing
himself under the direction of the French medallist Dupré. His talents
attracting the notice of Cardinal de Richelieu, he was appointed
engraver to the royal mint at Paris. This appointment Varin held till
his death, adding at a later period those of Superintendent-General
of the Coinage, and Guardian of the Dies. Varin visited England and
Sweden, receiving many commissions in both countries. In painting he
has left little of note; but of medals some of the finest productions
of the seventeenth century were executed by him. He died in 1672.


[6] Simon Passe, the youngest son of Crispin Passe, the eminent artist
of Utrecht, born circ. A.D. 1574, received his first instruction in the
art of engraving from his father. About 1613 he came to England, where
he resided for some 10 years, and engraved a large number of prints,
portraits, &c. He was employed by Nicholas Hillard to engrave counters
of the Royal Family of England. After quitting England, he entered the
service of the King of Denmark, under whose protection he remained till
his death circ. 1644.

[7] Nicholas Briot, the chief engraver to the Paris mint during the
reign of Louis XIII., was the inventor of the balance for striking
coins. Before his invention all coins were struck by the hammer.
Briot first submitted his new invention to the authorities at Paris
in 1615; but it was not adopted till 1623, and then only temporarily,
when he was placed at the head of the coinage in France for that
year. The opposition experienced by Briot in his own country induced
him to submit his invention to the authorities at the London Mint,
where it was at once favourably received, and he was appointed chief
engraver from 1628—1633, when he returned to France and again received
employment at the Paris Mint. During his residence in England Briot
executed a large number of dies for coins as well as dies and moulds
for medals, all of which are gems of medallic work.

The reverse inscription refers to the determination of Charles to
assist the United Provinces in establishing their independence, and to
restore Frederick Count Palatine to the throne of Bohemia.

[8] The date of Thomas Rawlins's first engagement at the Mint is
uncertain. We find him, however, associated with Briot as engraver
before 1642. Upon the breaking out of the Civil War, Rawlins attached
himself to the person of the King, for whom he executed many of the
dies used at the local mints. Amongst these the most remarkable is
that of the Oxford crown. After the death of Charles, Rawlins executed
several commemorative medals, which were distributed amongst those who
were true to the royal cause. He was also employed by the corporations
of certain provincial towns, of which were Oxford, Bristol, and
Gloucester, in the manufacture of tokens. After the Restoration, Simon
being removed from his post at the mint, and being appointed "one of
His Majesty's Chief Engravers," &c., Rawlins was reinstated with the
title of "Chief Engraver." This situation he filled till his death,
which occurred in 1670, at which time he was engaged on new dies for a

being in accordance with their declaration of 19th May, 1642.

and property of the subject. Essex, born in 1582, was appointed general

the command of the forces maintained by the seven associated counties

[9] Thomas Simon, the artist, whose birthplace and date of birth are
uncertain, was first noticed by Nicholas Briot about 1633, and through
him was engaged at the Royal Mint in 1636, to engrave the great seal
of the Admiralty. In 1645 Simon received his first appointment under
Parliament as "Joint Chief Engraver" with Edward Wade, and producing
several seals of State remarkable for their artistic skill, he was
rewarded by promotion to the post of "Chief Engraver to the Mint and
Seals." From this time till the Restoration, Simon produced a large
number of medals, many of which are of great beauty both in design and
execution, and also the coins with the effigy of the Protector, by
whom he was appointed "Sole Chief Engraver and Medal-maker." At the
Restoration a fresh patent having been granted to Simon as one of His
Majesty's Chief Engravers, he was ordered to prepare the necessary
Great Seals, those of the Protector having been broken up. The
appointment of John Roettier as one of the Engravers to the Mint led to
a quarrel between him and Simon, which resulted in the resignation of
the latter. Simon died in 1665 of the plague. Some little time before
his death, he produced his masterpiece "The Petition Crown."

Sir Thomas (Lord) Fairfax, parliamentary general, commanded at Marston
Moor, was appointed general in chief of the parliamentary army to

[10] Of Abraham Simon, the brother of Thomas Simon, our information
is very limited. At an early age he studied theology, but with tastes
similar to those of his brother, he soon left these studies and went
to Sweden, where his reputation as a modeller in wax speedily raised
him to public notice. He entered the service of Queen Christina, and
became one of her suite in her travels. Before the outbreak of the
Civil War he returned to England, where his portraits became famous.
That he left England during the Commonwealth, as stated by some, is
very doubtful, as there are many medals executed by him during that
period, and chiefly of leading parliamentarians. It is certain, that at
the Restoration he stood high in favour with the King, and received 100
guineas for a portrait of him in wax. In disgust at the treatment he
received from the Duke of York, he ceased to work altogether, and died
shortly afterwards in great poverty.

Sir John Campbell, born 1598, elected Earl of Loudon 1633, was

value of £40 each to the four flag officers. Of these one is in the
possession of C. D. Holworthy, who inherited it from his maternal
ancestor, Capt. Haddock.

    157. Another. Similar: without border. Gold. Size 1·6. Struck;
    with ring for suspension. By T. Simon.

The medals of the class were probably distributed amongst the Captains
of the vessels engaged.

    158. Saving the Triumph, 1653. Same medal with inscription
    engraved on the reverse, FOR EMINENT SERVICE IN SAVING Y
    Oval. Size 1·6. Struck; with ring for suspension. By T. Simon.

The Triumph was Blake's flag-ship, and in the battle of 31st July,
1653, in the absence of her commander, she took fire and was abandoned
by the greater part of the crew. Those who remained, redoubling their
efforts, succeeded in saving her, and were rewarded with the above
medal bearing a special inscription.

    159. Admiral Blake, 1653. _Obv._ Bust, three quarters r.,
    wearing armour, ruff, &c. ROB^Ṭ. BLAKE. _Born_ 1598. _Died_

    which is incredible; to be imitated._ _Rev._ Naval engagement
    with broad trophy border as No. 155. Silver. Oval. Size 2·3.
    Engraved and struck. By T. Simon.

Robert Blake, born 1598, commanded in the West for Parliament during
the Civil War, entered the Naval Service in 1649 and obtained several
victories over the Dutch during the years 1652—1654. Died 1657. The
obverse of this medal is engraved, and the reverse is struck, each on a
thin plate. The portrait is not as it professes to be of Blake, but is
a coarse copy of one of Maurice, Prince of Orange.

    160. Peace with Holland, 1654. _Obv._ Britain and Holland
    armed, holding spears, each surmounted with cap of Liberty, and
    bearing national flag, Peace uniting spears with olive-wreath.

Holland, defeated in a series of naval actions, sued for peace and
submitted to terms favourable to England. This medal is Dutch, and
is composed of two plates united by rim. It was probably executed by
Pieter van Abeele, (see note, p. 37).

    161. Another, 1654. _Obv._ Cromwell delivering treaty of Peace
    to the representative of the United Provinces. VREDE GESLOTEN
    1654. _Rev._ Shield, arms and crest of the town of Sluys.

    and Holland with Belgic lion at her feet, seated, facing,

    sea; on stern of each, S.D. LUXURIAT GEMINO NEXU TRANQVILLA

of commerce and alliance between England and Holland.

    163. Another, 1654. _Obv._ Neptune in sea-chariot, facing;
    on his knees two shields, arms of England with Ireland and
    Holland; car attended by two Tritons; behind, sun, whose

    Struck. By Jerian Pool.[11]

[11] Jerian Pool or Juriaen van Pool was a medallist of some note at
Amsterdam, whose works date from the middle to the second half of
the 17th century. The most important of his medals are a portrait of
Admiral Martin van Tromp, 1653, another of William, Prince of Orange,
of the following year, and the inauguration-medal of the Guildhall of
Amsterdam, 1655.

    164—165. Death of Cromwell, 1658. _Obv._ Bust l., laureate,

Oliver Cromwell, born 2nd April, 1599, commanded for Parliament in the
Civil War, appointed Lord-Lieutenant and Commander-in-Chief in Ireland
1649, Lord-General 1650, and Lord Protector 1653, died Sept. 3rd, 1658.

    168. Another. _Obv._ Bust l., laureate, mantle over shoulders.
    OLIVAR. D. G. RP. ANG. SCO. HIB. PRO. _Rev._ Similar to

    1·3. Struck.

John Lilburn, an ardent agitator born 1618, was several times
prosecuted and imprisoned for seditious libels, first against Charles
I., and afterwards against Cromwell. This medal was struck upon his
acquittal in 1649, when he was accused of high treason for libelling
Cromwell. He died 1657.

    170. General Lambert, 1653. Head l., bare; behind, I. LAMBERT.
    Lead. Oval. Size 1·15. Cast. This medalet is made after the
    manner of an antique gem.

    1·85. Cast; with ring for suspension. By T. Rawlins.

Sir Henry Slingesby, Bart., commanded in the North for the King, and
after the surrender of York made his way to Oxford with a portion of
his army; but being attacked on the road near Daventry by a company
of rebel horse, he lost all that he had. Shortly afterwards, being
made prisoner he was confined at Hull, and being brought up to London
was executed on Tower Hill 8th June, 1658. At Oxford he resided with
Sir William Parkhurst, Master of the Mint, which may account for the
execution of this medal intended as an "earnest penny" for his three

    173. Henry Scobell, 1649. _Obv._ Bust l., in doublet. _Rev.
    Hen. Scobell_, engraved. Silver. Size 1·3. Cast and chased. By

was general of the forces of London and Westminster at the battle of
Newbury 1644, and member of Parliament for Rutlandshire, and one of
the Council of State, 1653. Harrington, born in 1609, was a strong
supporter of the Parliament, by which he was much employed; was

    _Rev._ Sun rising out of sea: above, on scroll, ORIAR. Lead.

    Silver. Size 2·7. Repoussé and chased. By Pieter van Abeele.[12]

[12] Pieter van Abeele lived at Amsterdam, and was probably a pupil of
Jerian Pool. Van Abeele's most famous work is a medal in commemoration
of the granting of arms to the city of Amsterdam in 1342 and 1488.
He also executed medals for William II. and III. of Orange, Gustavus
Adolphus, &c. His medals are of repoussé work and chased, the two sides
being united by a rim.

This medal consists of two plates united by rim, and was executed by
Peter van Abeele, during the residence of Charles in Holland.

    190. Charles II. and William III. of Orange, 1660? _Obv._
    Bust of King, three quarters r., hair long, in armour, &c.,
    and wearing George. CAROLVS II. D. G. MAGNÆ BRIT. &c. _Rev._
    William III. of Orange, on horseback r.; distant view of river
    Silver. Size 2·7. Repoussé and chased. By Pieter van Abeele.

In the same style as the previous medal. From the youthful appearance
of William this medal could not have been executed after 1660. It
was probably issued, like the following one, upon the King's leaving

    191. Reward for services, 1660. _Obv._ Bust of King, facing
    r., wearing armour, &c. CAROLUS II. D. G. MAG. BRIT. FRAN. ET
    HIB. REX. _Rev._ Three crowns within branches of laurel and
    chain-border. Gold. Size 2·9. Cast and chased; has had ring for
    suspension. Dutch.

This medal is unique, and was evidently given by Charles to some
faithful adherent.

    192. Embarkation at Scheveningen, 1660. _Obv._ Same as No. 190.
    _Rev._ Fleet under sail: above, Fame with trumpet and scroll
    inscribed, SOLI DEO GLORIA; beneath, inscription in Dutch
    giving date of departure from Scheveningen, 2nd June 1660, and
    edge, PA. F. Silver. Size 2·75. Repoussé and chased. By Pieter
    van Abeele, whose monogram is on the edge.

Of the same fabric as No. 190. Charles sailed from Scheveningen for
England 2nd June 1660 (N. S.), with his court, on board the Naseby, the
name of which ship was then changed to that of the Royal Charles.

    193. Landing at Dover, 1660. _Obv._ Bust of King r., wearing
    armour, &c., within branches of laurel; around, legend with
    date of arrival in London, "1660 DIE 29 MAII." _Outer legend._
    CAROLUS II. D. G. MAGN. BRITANN. &c.: _I.R._ (Monogram.)
    _Rev._ Ship approaching shore, on which England, Scotland and
    Ireland, personified, with three crowns, sceptre, and sword,
    await its arrival: above ship, star and eye of Providence, in
    the distance, Dover Castle. SI DEUS EST CUSTOS QUIS MEUS HOSTIS
    ERIT. Silver. Size 2·25. Struck. By John Roettier.[13] It may
    be considered the first of the large series of medals executed
    by him.

[13] The head of the Roettier family "the family of Medallists" was
one John Roettier a native of Antwerp and a goldsmith by profession,
who had three sons, John, Joseph, and Philip. During the residence of
Charles II. in Holland, John the eldest brother was presented to him
as an eminent medallist, and upon his coming to England soon after the
Restoration he was appointed one of the engravers to the Mint having
Thomas Simon as his colleague, who retired from his post in 1664. John
Roettier then became one of the Chief Engravers to the Mint, and with
him was associated his brother Joseph, and somewhat later his younger
brother Philip, as in 1669 we find that by letters patent July 3rd,
1669, John, Joseph, and Philip Roettier were appointed His Majesty's
Engravers at the Mint with a yearly allowance of £450 during their
natural lives. In 1672, through the death of Varin, Joseph Roettier by
Colbert's influence, obtained the appointment of Chief Engraver at the
Mint at Paris, and in 1678 Philip Roettier quitted England and went
to reside in Flanders, the coinage of that country during that period
showing many traces of his work, which is inferior in style to that
of his elder brothers. In 1690 upon the death of G. Bower, James, the
eldest son of John Roettier, was associated with his father at the
Mint; but in 1694 having played tricks with a portrait of William III.,
which he was executing for a new copper coinage, he was dismissed,
and going to France found employment at the Paris Mint. Norbert his
brother, who does not appear to have been regularly employed at
the London Mint, having abstracted some of the dies for fraudulent
purposes, fled in the following year also to France, and like his
brother obtained an appointment at the Paris Mint. He also executed a
large number of medals for the Stuart family (v. Stuart Medals, p. 60).
The inquiry which followed this scandal resulted in the dismissal of
John Roettier, who died in 1703, and was buried in the Tower.

The King landed at Dover on the 26th of May 1660 (O. S.) and on the
29th following made his public entry into London.

    194. Restoration, 1660. "Gigantomachia." _Obv._ Bust of King
    l., wearing robes and collar of the Garter. CAROLVS II. DEI
    GRATIA MAG. BR. &c. _Rev._ Jupiter, in clouds, carried by
    eagle, destroying with thunderbolt prostrate giants: _G.
    Bower F._; ornamented border. Silver. Size 2·5. Struck. By G.

[14] George Bower, or Bowers, as he signs himself on his later medals,
was appointed one of the engravers to the Mint after the Restoration, a
post which he filled till his death in 1690. He executed a large number
of medals for the Royal Family, and also for private individuals, which
are characterized by skill and execution.

Charles is here represented as Jupiter demolishing his foes, a probable
allusion to the execution of the Regicides.

    195. Another "Felicitas Britanniæ," 1660. _Obv._ Bust of King
    r., wearing armour and cloak. CAROLVS SECVNDUS D. G., MAG.
    BRIT. &c. _Rev._ Peace laureate, with scales and fasces, and
    accompanied by Minerva and Hercules presenting olive-branch to
    Britannia seated on sea-shore; behind, Fame: above, Genius with
    palm. FELICITAS BRITANNIÆ. 29 MAII. 1660; _incuse_. Silver.
    Size 3·3. Struck. By John Roettier.

The intention of the medallist is to show that the Restoration was
effected under Providence by wisdom and fortitude, and that it produced
to Britain justice, plenty and peace. (See also No. 197.)

    196. Another. _Obv._ Head of King r., laureate. CAROLVS
    SECVNDVS DEI GRATIA MAG. BRI. &c. _Rev._ Britannia holding
    spear and shield, seated on sea-shore, and contemplating her
    navies. FAVENTE DEO; in ex., BRITANNIA; on edge, CAROLVS
    Struck. By John Roettier.

This and the next medal are without date. They appear, however, to
commemorate the Restoration, but were not executed till several years
afterwards. It is generally supposed that they were struck at the
conclusion of the treaty of Breda, 31st July, 1667; but that is not
possible, for Pepys in his diary under date 26th Feb. 1667, in speaking
of this medal, says: "At my goldsmith's did observe the King's new
medal where in little there is Mrs. Stewart's face as well done as
ever I saw any thing in my whole life, I think: and a pretty thing it
is that he should choose her face to represent Brittannia by." Mrs.
Stuart, afterwards Duchess of Richmond, was one of the beauties at the
court of Charles II. (See No. 245.)

    197. Another. _Obv._ Bust of King r., wearing armour and cloak.
    AVGVSTISS. CAROLO SECVNDO P. P. _I. R._ (monogram). _Rev._
    Hercules, Minerva, Peace, and Mercury (with features of the
    King) assembled around altar, behind which stands Prudence,
    leaning on shield with figure of Britannia, &c.: Plenty reposes
    in the foreground. NVLLVM NVMEN ABEST. (_Juv. Sat._ x. 365.)
    BRITANNIÆ. Gold. Size 2·4. Struck. By John Roettier.

For explanation of reverse see note to No. 195. The shield held by
Prudence being ornamented with a very rough copy of the reverse type of
the previous medal, it may be therefore concluded that this medal was
executed at the same time or shortly after that one.

    198—199. Coronation, 1661. _Obv._ Bust of King r., crowned,
    wearing robes and collar of Garter. CAROLVS II. D. G. ANG. SCO.
    &c. on shoulder, T. S. _Rev._ King seated l., holding sceptre,
    1661. Gold and silver. Size 1·1. Struck. By T. Simon.

This medal was made for distribution among those attending at the

    200—201. Another. _Obv._ Bust of King l., laureate, wearing
    robes and collar of Garter. CAROLVS II. D. G. MAG. BRIT. &c.
    _Rev._ Oak-tree in full leaf, with three crowns among the
    branches; above, sun. IAM FLORESCIT. 23 APR. 1661. Gold and
    silver. Size 1·65. Cast and chased; with ring for suspension.

This medal is by T. Simon, and must have been hastily produced. It was
probably issued for distribution to the King's servants, as there is an
item in one of Simon's accounts for two in gold supplied to the King's
cooks. As No. 182 expressed an expectation that the royal oak would
revive, so this declares that it has.

    202. Marriage, 1662. _Obv._ Bust of Catherine of Braganza
    l., hair drawn back, and wearing coronet, &c. INFANTA DONA
    CATHERINA; _engraved_. _Rev._ Two orange trees, their stems
    intertwined. Silver. Oval. Size 1. Cast and chased; with ring
    for suspension.

As Catharine here wears the Portuguese dress, which before her marriage
she changed for that of the English Court, this badge must have been
produced soon after her arrival in England.

    203. Another. _Obv._ Busts of King and Queen facing each other;
    the King laureate; the Queen wearing coronet. CAROLVS II. ET
    CATHARINA D. G. MAG. BRIT. &c. G. B. _Rev._ Fame with trumpet
    1662. G. B. Silver-gilt. Size 2·05. Struck. By G. Bower.

Struck on the marriage of Charles with Catharine of Braganza, dau. of
John IV., King of Portugal, 29th May, 1662.

    204. Another. _Obv._ Busts of King and Queen jugate r.; Queen
    slightly draped. CAROLVS II. ET CATHARINA D. G. MAG. BRIT. &c.
    _Rev._ Jupiter with eagle, and Venus, behind whom Cupid; all in
    clouds. MAIESTAS ET AMOR. Silver. Size 1. Struck. By G. Bower.

    205. Marriage Badge, 1662. _Obv._ Bust of King r., crowned, in
    armour, cloak, &c. CAROLVS II. D. G., MAG. BRIT. &c. _Rev._
    Bust of Queen l., draped, wearing coronet, &c. CATHARINA D. G.,
    MAG. BRIT. &c. Silver. Oval. Size 1·7. Struck. By G. Bower.

    206. Charles II. and Catharine, 1662, "The Golden Medal."
    _Obv._ Bust of King r., laureate, in armour and cloak. CAROLVS
    II. DEI G. MAG. BRI. &c. _Rev._ Bust of Queen r., draped, hair
    ornamented with pearls. CATHARINA D. G. MAG. BRI. &c. Silver.
    Size 1·65. Struck.

This fine medal was executed by J. Roettier, and is probably the
"Golden Medal" commemorated by the poet Waller.

    Our guard upon the royal side
    On the reverse, our beauty's pride!
    Here we discern the frown and smile
    The force and glory of our isle.

    207. Another. _Obv._ Bust of King r., laureate, in armour and
    cloak. CAROLVS II. D. G. MAG. BRIT. &c. G. B. _Rev._ Bust of
    Queen r., draped, wearing coronet. CATHARINA D. G. MAG. BRIT.

The Reverse inscription states that this medal is a memorial of the
successful engagement of four days, 11—14 June (N. S.), 1666, between
the Dutch and English fleets, the latter being defeated with heavy
losses. The engagement took place off the North Foreland, and is
memorable for its long duration and the desperate courage with which it
was fought on both sides. The English fleet was commanded by Monk and
Prince Rupert and the Dutch by De Ruyter.

In spite of conferences having been opened at Breda to negotiate a
treaty of peace, De Witte despatched a fleet to the Nore, which,
after burning Sheerness, advanced as far as Chatham and destroyed the
shipping. Shortly afterwards a treaty with the Dutch was signed at
Breda on 31st July, 1667, and proclaimed on 6th September following.

    218. Peace of Breda, 1667. _Obv._ Belgia with sceptre

    arms of Breda: edge with inscription stating that this medal
    was struck by permission of the States of Holland and West
    Friesland, &c. Silver. Size 2·8. Struck. By C. Adolfszoon.[15]

[15] Christoffel Adolfszoon, a Dutch medallist who worked during the
second half of the 17th century, is best known by a medal, which he
executed of Michael de Ruyter. His work is coarse, but characteristic
of Dutch medallic art of that period.

The issue of this medal by authority of the States gave great offence
to Charles, who took the motto HINC MALA BESTIA to apply to himself.
Remonstrances were made, a formal apology received, and the dies
destroyed. This medal was however one of the grounds of offence in the
declaration of War against the Dutch in 1672.

    219. Another. _Obv._ Peace, holding olive-branch and
    cornucopiae, burning implements of war; under her feet,
    prostrate soldier; behind, Cupid with arrow. BELLO AB ANGLIS

    220. Another. _Obv._ View of Breda from river covered with

    &c. _Rev._ Ship of Peace r., propelled by favouring gales and
    accompanied by Fame and Tritons: her sails decorated with the
    shields of contracting parties: beneath, A^o. 1667. HIER ZEIILT
    HET VREDESCHIP OP'T ZILUER IN DE ZEE, &c. Silver. Size 3·2.
    Repoussé and chased; hollow. By Müller.[16]

[16] Müller, whom Bolzenthal calls "der Meister Müller," worked in
Holland during the middle of the 17th century, and executed medals of
repoussé work of the same style as Pieter van Abeele.

    221. Another. _Obv._ An English and Dutch ship sailing side by
    side with wreaths on main mastheads. _Rev._ Festoon of fruit
    and flowers and wreath, to which are suspended two shields,
    arms of Great Britain and Holland, &c. BRITAN. BATAV. PAX.
    1667. C. A. Silver. Size 1·75. Struck. By C. Adolfszoon.

The arms of Great Britain are wrongly quartered, those of Scotland
being in the 1st and 4th quarters. The same mistake occurs on No. 218.

    222. Proclamation of Treaty of Breda, 1667. _Obv._ Neptune,
    in sea-chariot drawn by horses, staying with his trident the
    progress of a naval engagement. SIC CVNCTUS PELAGI CECIDIT

    with shields of Denmark, France, England and Holland, with
    Sweden in centre; beneath, BREDA Den 17 Sept. 1667, G. POOL.
    Struck. By Jerian Pool.

In the negotiations of peace between England and Holland, Sweden acted
as mediator, consequently her shield is placed in the centre as uniting
those of the belligerents.

    223—224. British Colonization, 1670. _Obv._ Jugate busts of
    King in armour, and Queen draped, r. CAROLVS ET CATHARINA
    REX ET REGINA. _Rev._ Globe with portions of all the four
    continents. DIFFVSVS IN ORBE BRITANNVS. 1670. Gold and silver.
    Size 1·6. Struck. By one of the Roettiers.

This medal alludes to the remarkable growth of British colonization,
which as early as 1670 extended over all the four quarters of the
Globe. It may however specially refer to the dowry of Queen Catharine,
which laid the foundation of the British Empire in India.

The reverse inscription is a play on Virgil's line, "Penitus toto
divisos orbe Britannos."

  (Ecl. I. 67.)

    225. Charles XI. of Sweden, Knight of the Garter, 1671. _Obv._
    St. George and the dragon, r. CAROLVS XI. REX SVE. EQ. NOB.

One of the series of medals of Louis XIV. The Battle of Solebay was
fought on the 28th May, 1672, between the combined fleets of England
and France under the Duke of York and D'Estrées, and the Dutch under
De Ruyter. The battle was indecisive, but the Dutch retired.

    227. Christ's Hospital, Foundation of Nautical School, 1673.
    _Obv._ Bust of King r., in decorated armour and cloak. CAROLVS

    INSTITVTOR AVGVSTVS. 1673. Silver. Size 2·8. Struck. By J.
    Roettier. This is described by Evelyn as a "glorious medallion."

In 1672, Charles II. founded a nautical school at Christ's Hospital to
provide for the education of forty boys, ten of whom were annually to
be placed in the sea-service. Each of them still wears the following

    228. Christ's Hospital Badge, 1673. Badge (plaque) with device
    similar to reverse of preceding medal. Student is surrounded

A memorial of Captain van Gelder, son-in-law of Admiral de Ruyter, who
was killed in the action of the 21st Aug., 1673, between the combined
English and French fleets, and the Dutch.

    230. Peace of London, 1674. _Obv._ William III., Prince of

    on the sea-shore; above, scroll entwined with orange-branch and
    inscribed, VIRES ULTRA SORTEMQUE IUVENTÆ. _Rev._ Dove with palm

    ships and rising sun. A DOMINO VENIT PAX ET VICTORIA LÆTA;
    _chronogrammatic_. Silver. Size 2·35. Struck. Dutch.

Peace between England and Holland was concluded in London in 1674.
The obverse alludes to the appointment at a very early age of William
as Commander-in-Chief of the army of the United Provinces and
Stadtholder, and also to the capture of Naerden in 1674.

    231. Marriage of William III., Prince of Orange, and Princess

    between Mercury and genii supporting shields of Spain, France,
    and Holland; beneath, lie Discord and War bound; the whole
    within wreath of olive-branches. Silver. Size 2·7. Struck.

The treaty of Nimeguen, negotiated by England between France and
Holland, was concluded Aug. 1678, but not proclaimed till 20th Oct.
following. Extremely coarse work.

    233. Popish Plot, 1678. Details of murder of Sir Edmund Berry
    Godfrey. _Obv._ Three divisions; in centre one, two monks
    strangling Godfrey, above whom 1678, and two men carrying him

    Godfrey lying on his face, his sword passed through his body;
    in upper division the Pope prompted by the Devil. ROMES REVENGE
    HOVS. Reverse plain. Pewter. Size 2·8. Cast and chased.

Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey, after being strangled near the watergate at
Somerset-house, was carried by his murderers in a sedan chair to Soho
Square, and from thence on horseback to Primrose Hill, where they left
him in a ditch with his own sword run through his body, in the position
of one who had committed suicide.

    234. Another. _Obv._ Bust of Godfrey r., in doublet, &c., two
    hands strangling him with his cravat. MORIENDO RESTITVIT REM
    E. GODFREY. _Rev._ Green strangling Godfrey in the presence of
    the Pope, who holds papal bull and blesses the murderer. TANTVM
    RELLIGIO POTVIT; (Lucret. Lib. I. 102); on edge, CERVICE FRACTA
    FIDEM SVSTVLIT ATLAS XNS. 1678. Silver. Size 1·5. Struck. By G.

The inscr. on the edge compares Godfrey to Atlas, who required all his
strength to sustain the world, whilst Godfrey sustained the faith with
a broken neck.

    235. Another. _Obv._ Same. _Rev._ Hill on horseback supporting
    before him the dead body of Godfrey, and accompanied by another
    murderer feigning drunkenness and carrying sword; in the
    distance, Primrose Hill; stars shew that it is night. EQVO
    CREDITE TVCRI (sic). (Virg. Aen. II. 48.) Edge as preceding.
    Silver. Size 1·55. Struck. By G. Bower.

In conveying the body of Godfrey from Soho to Primrose Hill the
murderers agreed that, if stopped on the road, they should pretend that
they were taking home a drunken companion.

    236. Another. _Obv._ Same. _Rev._ The Pope's head and the
    Devil's joined in one face. ECCLESIA PERVERSA TENET FACIEM

    237. Another. _Obv._ Godfrey walking after his murder. GODFREY
    in ex., PRO. (Protestant). _Rev._ St. Denis after martyrdom
    SVMVS (PARES, &c., on obv.) in ex., PA. (Papist). Silver. Size
    1·5. Struck. By G. Bower.

Like St. Denis, who after his martyrdom picked up his head and carried
it under his arm, Godfrey is represented walking after his murder,
because it was asserted by some of the accused party that they had seen
him walking about Primrose Hill after the stated time of his murder.
The "Protestant" Saint was thus equal to the "Papist."

    238. Another. _Obv._ A Janus head; Jesuit's face with cap, and
    Monk's with cowl. O WHY SO FICKLE. _Rev._ Cluster of seven
    heads. BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER. Silver. Size 1·4.
    Struck. By G. Bower.

Great uncertainty exists in the identification of the heads on this
medal. Evelyn supposes the double head to represent Titus Oates and
Bedloe, and the cluster the heads of the supposed detectors of the
Plot. It is quite as probable that the heads may be those of Charles,
James and the five Cabal Ministers.

    239. Duke of York wrecked, 1682. _Obv._ Bust of the Duke of
    G.B.F. _Rev._ Ship in distress off a rocky shore. IMPAVIDUM

Norfolk coast, and the Duke and all his companions narrowly escaped

Struck to commemorate the Rye House Plot. The Hydra represents the
committee of six, who associated themselves for the redress of
grievances, Monmouth, Lord W. Russell, Hampden, Algernon Sidney, the
Earl of Essex, and Lord Howard, the seventh is the devil. The two
wolves are Sidney and Russell.

    241. Death of Charles II., 1685. _Obv._ Head of King r.,

[17] Jan Smeltzing, born at Nimeguen, worked principally at Leyden,
where he incurred such blame by his satirical medals that he was
compelled to seek refuge for a while in France. He was, however,
allowed to return to Leyden, where he died at the end of the 17th
century. Smeltzing worked for the Emperor Leopold I., Louis XIV. of
France, and James II. and William III. of England, besides others. His

[18] R. Arondeaux, French medallist of the second half of the 17th
century, worked in the Netherlands, and was afterwards much employed by

Tho Obverse represents the religious toleration of Britain; the Mitre
of the Church of England, the chalice, wafer, and rosary of Rome, and
the dove of the Nonconformists having the free Bible in their centre.
The inscribed scroll refers to the engagement by James of James
Steward, a Scottish lawyer, to write letters to the Pensionary Fagel
with a view to induce William and Mary to approve the abolition of
the Test and Penal Laws. The Reverse symbolizes James devouring his
coronation oath, trampling on the liberty of conscience, and removing
the Test and Penal Laws, which sealed the safety of the state.

    Ambassador in Holland. Silver. Size 2·35. Struck. Dutch.

Ignatius White, Marquis d'Albeville was Ambassador Extraordinary
for England in Holland at the time of the Prince's birth, which he
celebrated with much pomp and with splendid entertainments.

    280. Another. _Obv._ Truth opening door of cabinet and

    II. 48.) Silver. Size 2·25. Struck.

This medal was struck in Holland at the instigation of those who
asserted that the Prince was a supposititious child, and that Father
Petre and the Jesuits were the contrivers of the plot.

    281. Another. _Obv._ Aglauros opening basket, from which
    escapes Ericthonius, in distance two frightened women.
    withered rose-bush with two flowers; at small distance, young
    sucker. TAMEN NASCATUR OPORTET. MDCLXXXVIII. Silver. Size 1·9.
    Struck. Dutch.

The Prince is here likened to Ericthonius. As the Queen was by certain
persons held to be incapable of bearing a child, they considered the
Prince not to be of royal blood but a pretender, or as Ericthonius, to
have been produced without a mother. The rosebush with two roses is
symbolical of the King and Queen, and the sucker of the Prince, which
springs up at such a distance that its parent stock is doubtful.

    282. Antichristian Confederacy, 1688. _Obv._ Soliman III.,
    Louis XIV., the Dey of Algiers, and James swearing alliance at

    QUINTUS. 1688. Silver. Size 1·45. Struck. Dutch.

It was rumoured in Holland that a secret treaty had been concluded
between James and Louis XIV. called "The French league to cut
Protestants' throats in England," and also that James had allowed
some Algerine Corsairs to carry Dutch prizes into English ports.
Like-wise Louis was accused of exciting the Turks against the Germans.
As illustrating these rumours these four potentates are represented
as leaguing together against Christianity, the devil being a fifth

    283. Invitation to William of Orange, 1688. _Obv._ Busts
    of William and Mary jugate r., draped. _Beneath_, M. WILH.
    _above_, ATAVUM PRO LIBERTATE FIDEQUE. _Rev._ Religion under
    eye of Providence trampling upon emblems of Romanism and
    resting her l. hand on cap of liberty, placed upon open Bible
    lying on altar inscribed, SS. FIDES; in r. hand, scroll
    Size 2·45. Struck. Dutch.

When Zuleistein, who had been sent by William to congratulate James on
the birth of the Prince, returned to Holland, he brought back with him
an invitation to William numerously signed to place himself at the head
of the Protestant party in England. The reverse refers to the mistrust
of the Protestant party of the declaration of Liberty of Conscience,
and to Religion, who, claiming an open and free Bible, appeals to the
letters of Fagel as setting forth the principles of William. (See No.

    284. Flight of James, 1689. _Obv._ Bust of King l., wearing
    bag-wig, and draped. IACOBUS II. BRITAN. REX FUGITIV. _Rev._

winds, and being seized by the inhabitants of Faversham, he returned to
London, but at the desire of William of Orange, he again left 2 Jan.,
and from the Medway sailed to France.

    285. Another. _Obv._ Same. _Rev._ An oak and an orange tree,
    the former broken; behind, sea with ships and rising sun. PRO
    1·4. Struck. By J. Smeltzing.

The abdication of James is symbolized by the broken oak, and the
accession of William by the orange tree and rising sun.

    286. Another. _Obv._ Head of Louis XIV. r. LVDOVICVS MAGNVS
    REX. _Rev._ Belgic lion carrying flag with Christian monogram
    and staff with cap of Liberty, driving before him James with
    broken sword, and Father Petre bearing infant Prince holding
    toy-windmill; in the distance, French ship. AVT REX AVT NIHIL;
    in ex., REGIFVGIVM IAC. AD LVD. XIV. Lead. Size 1·5. Struck.

Father Petre was the King's confessor and chief adviser. The Prince is
represented with a windmill, because those who disputed his legitimacy
said he was the son of a miller.

    287. Another. _Obv._ Bust of King l., laur. and draped.
    torch firing tree, in which eagle and eaglet in nest; in
    the distance, eagle carrying off fox's cub. 4. IAN. 1689.
    APPULIT. Silver. Size 2·35. Struck. By J. Smeltzing.

The intended application of the reverse design is uncertain. The vixen
may represent England driving out the King, who had deprived her of her
religious liberty.

    288. Flight of Prince James, 1688. _Obv._ Father Petre mounted
    on lobster, and holding in his arms the young Prince, on

    windmill, surmounted by Jesuit's cap, and surrounded by rosary
    with inscription, HONI SOIT QUI NON Y PENSE; and badge, a
    Silver. Size 1·25. Struck.

Executed in Holland and a satire on the birth of Prince James. The
lobster is a satirical allusion to the order of the Jesuits, of which
body Father Petre was a member, and whose founder having accidentally
dropped his Bible into the sea, was presented with it the next morning
by a lobster. The arms on the reverse refer to the disputed legitimacy
of the prince. (See No. 286.)

    289. Reception of James by Louis XIV., 1689. _Obv._ Head of
    F. _Rev._ Gallia receiving James, his Queen and son. PERFUGIUM

    Struck. By G. Hamerani.[20]

[20] Giacomo Hamerani, who executed this medal, was the last of that
famous family of medallists. He worked chiefly at Rome, where he was
chief medallist to Pius VI., and where this medal was struck.

On the death of the Younger Pretender in 1788 his brother Henry assumed
the title of Henry IX., and caused this and other medals to be struck.

The bear on the obverse is James II., and the hives are the three
kingdoms; whilst the sting of the bees is the vote of the House of
Commons, 28 Jan. 1689, which excluded Roman Catholics from holding any

    foreground, flight of Father Petre with Romanist insignia and
    the Pope carrying young Prince. Silver. Size 2·1. By J. Luder.

This medal was probably executed in 1689, a little before William's
coronation. The French king had espoused the cause of James, and
Ireland was already in a state of revolt against the Protestants, the
civil and military power having been placed by James in the hands of
the Roman Catholics.

The reverse alludes to an extraordinary prodigy, which happened on 6
May, 1665. The Parliament and people of Orange being assembled in the
Circus to hear a proclamation from the Prince upon their delivery from
the oppressions of France, a crown was seen to form itself gradually
in the air, and to settle immediately over the throne which had been
prepared for the Prince. This phenomenon was witnessed by over 8000

    K.) Silver. Size 2·15. By P. H. Müller.[23]

[23] Philip Heinrich Müller, born at Augsburg 1653, was by trade a
goldsmith. At an early age he practised die-cutting, and was employed
by F. Kleinert and K. G. Lauffer of Nuremberg to execute medals. He
appears to have worked for several years at Nuremberg, and afterwards
to have returned to his native city, where he died in 1718.

This medal represents England at peace, reposing under the protection
of William and Mary, symbolised by the rose and orange trees.

One of the series of medals issued at Nuremberg by F. Kleinert and K.
G. Lauffer, the Chief Warden of the Mint of that city. In this work a

The Hydra represents the promoters of revolution trampling on Justice

first apprenticed to a jeweller, but, having a desire to travel,
he visited Holland, and afterwards England, where he practised
die-sinking. He made such progress in his art, that in 1704 he was
appointed chief engraver to the Mint, a post which he held till his
death in 1741. His medallic portraits of the Royal family of England
during that period are very numerous.

On 7 May, 1690, Parliament passed the Regency Bill, providing that
whenever William should go out of England, it should be lawful for Mary
to administer the affairs of the kingdom in his name and her own.

On 3 August, 1692, by means of false information, William hoped to
surprise the French under Luxembourg and to drive them from their

[29] Ehrenreich Hannibal, born at Stockholm 1678, was a pupil of
Arwed Karlsteen. In 1705 he was appointed medallist to the Court at
Brunswick, and was in the service of the Elector of Hanover at the
time of his accession to the English throne. Although he executed
several medals for George I. and George II., he was never employed at
the English Mint, nor is there any evidence of his having resided in
England. He afterwards worked for the Archbishops of Cologne, the kings
of Prussia, and the Landgraves of Hesse; his work being much esteemed.
He died 1741.

George, Elector of Hanover, was proclaimed King of England 12 Aug.

After the capture of Quebec, it was arranged that the garrison should
be conveyed to the nearest French port. In the following year the
conquest of the whole of Canada was completed. The reverse type of this
medal is suggested by the well-known "Judaea Capta" on Roman coins.

[33] Johann Georg Holtzhey, a native of Amsterdam, where he resided
during the greater part of his life, worked chiefly for Frederic the
Great of Prussia and the other sovereigns of Germany. He was also
employed occasionally by Louis XV. and Louis XVI. of France. Although
residing at Amsterdam, he does not appear to have executed any medals
for the House of Orange.

At the battle of Minden, 31 July, 1759, the French, under Marshal
Contades and the Duke de Broglie, were defeated by the Hanoverians and
English, commanded by Prince Ferdinand of Brunswick and Lord George
Sackville. Nothing but the refusal of Lord Sackville to complete the

the "North Briton," No. 45, 1763. General warrants being declared
illegal, Wilkes was released. The head in the jack-boot was a rustic
pun on the name of John Earl of Bute, Prime Minister 1762—3. The axe

Gibraltar had suffered a siege of three years, when the Spaniards
determined to make a supreme effort to capture the place by means of
floating batteries constructed by the French engineer D'Arcon. The
great attack was made 13 Sep. 1782, but failed, the batteries being
totally destroyed by red-hot cannon balls. The fortress was defended by

Birmingham on a new copper coinage. Returning to Paris about 1807, he
was appointed Director of the Mint, which post he resigned in 1814.
Afterwards, under the direction of Vivant-Denon and Jeuffroy, he issued

After the successes of Bonaparte, the Directory determined to make a
descent upon Ireland. The expedition, consisting of 17 sail of the line
and 13 frigates and transports, conveying 20,000 men, set sail from
Brest 19 Dec. 1796. The fleet was scattered by a severe storm, and only
a few ships reached Bantry Bay 24 Dec., and these returned without

An alliance having been entered into between France, Spain, and
Holland, a joint invasion of England was projected, and fleets were
equipped at Brest, Cadiz, and the Texel. The attempt was fruitless in
each case: the French fleet was dispersed at Bantry Bay (see No. 535);
the Spanish fleet was defeated by Admiral Jervis off Cape St. Vincent,
14 Feb. 1797; and that of the Dutch by Admiral Duncan off Camperdown,
11 Oct. 1797. (See No. 537.) For the victory off Cape St. Vincent,

The battle of Talavera, 27 July, 1809, was the first of the great
victories of Wellington in the Peninsula. The French were commanded
by Joseph Bonaparte, Victor and Sebastiani, and the Allies by
Wellington and Cuesta. For this victory Wellington, then Sir Arthur
Wellesley, was raised to the peerage. This is one of the series of
National Medals issued under the direction of James Mudie in 1820, "to
commemorate the succession of victories achieved by British arms over
Napoleon." A number of English and foreign artists were employed in the
accomplishment of this work.

[39] The place occupied in medallic art in the 17th century by the
Roettier family has been filled during the present century by the
family of the Wyons. This family is of German origin, George Wyon,
the first member who visited England, being a native of Cologne, and
forming one of the suite of George I., to whose person he was attached
as Chief Goldsmith. He is said to have died in the West Indies. His
son George was apprenticed to Hemmings, the goldsmith of George II.,
and in 1772 executed for the City of London a silver cup which was
presented to John Wilkes, the "Patriot." In 1775 he was engaged at
the Soho mint near Birmingham, and died in 1796, leaving four sons,
the two eldest being Thomas and Peter, who acted together as a firm
of general die-engravers in Birmingham till 1800. In this year Thomas
came to London, and was employed in the Dept. of the Engraver of His
Majesty's Seals, and of which Dept. he became chief in 1816. He died
in 1830, surviving by many years his son, Thomas Wyon, jun., who at
the early age of 23 in 1815 was appointed Chief Engraver to the Mint,
and who in that capacity executed, among numerous medals, that for the
battle of Waterloo (No. 576) and also the great recoinage of 1816. T.
Wyon, jun., died in 1817. His brother Benjamin was appointed Chief
Engraver of His Majesty's Seals in 1831, and executed among other
works the Crimea medal (No. 597). He died in 1858, and was succeeded
in his appointment by his son, J. S. Wyon, who in conjunction with his
brother, A. B. Wyon, engraved the New Zealand (No. 603) and Abyssinian
(No. 605) medals. J. S. Wyon died in 1873, and the appointment which he
held was given to his brother, A. B. Wyon. Peter Wyon, the second son
of George Wyon, after the departure of his brother to London remained
at Birmingham, where he displayed great taste in his designs and models
for ornamental brass-work. Before his death he had the satisfaction
of seeing his son William enjoying greater reputation than himself.
William Wyon, the R.A., was born at Birmingham 1795, and in 1815 he
came to London. In the following year he was appointed Assistant
Engraver to the Mint, and in 1828 succeeded Pistrucci as Chief
Engraver. In 1832 he was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy,
and in 1838 Academician, this being the first instance of a medallist
receiving such distinction. Besides the numerous coinages which W.
Wyon executed, he produced a large series of military, academical,
and private medals. He died in 1851, and was succeeded in his post by
his son, L. C. Wyon, the present Engraver to the Mint, who, besides
engraving a large series of national, colonial, and foreign coinages,
has executed the medals for the Second Burmese War (No. 595), for
Campaigns in South Africa (No. 596), for Service in the Baltic (No.
598), for the Indian Mutiny (No. 601), for Arctic Discoveries (No.
602), for the Ashantee War (No. 606), &c.

The victories in the Peninsula were Vimiera, 21 Aug. 1808; Talavera,
26—28 July, 1809; Busaco, 27 Sep. 1810; Ciudad Rodrigo captured 19 Jan.
1812; Badajoz captured 7 Apr. 1812; and Salamanca, 22 July, 1812.

On 18 Oct. 1812, after a short resistance the British ship "Frolic,"

    PISTRUCCI. Copper. Size 5·3. By B. Pistrucci.[40]

[40] Benedetto Pistrucci, born at Rome 1784 of good family, his father
being Judge of the High Criminal Court at Rome, began at the early age
of twelve to study the art of gem and cameo cutting, and acquired such
proficiency that before he was sixteen his works were often disposed
of by dealers as antiques. In 1815 Pistrucci came to England, and two
years later, upon the death of T. Wyon, was appointed Chief Engraver to
the Mint, being immediately engaged on the new silver and gold coinage,
having for the reverse type the St. George and Dragon. For some time
after the accession of George IV., Pistrucci was engaged on a coinage
for the new reign, which, having finished, he was promoted in 1828 to
the post of Chief Medallist to the Mint, W. Wyon being appointed his
successor as Chief Engraver. From this period till 1849 Pistrucci was
engaged on the dies of the Waterloo medal, occasionally relieving the
monotony of the work by the production of a large number of gems and
medals, among the latter being the Coronation Medal of Victoria, a
medal of the Duke of Wellington, one for the Royal Humane Society, &c.
&c. He died in 1855.

This medal was executed in pursuance of an order given by the Prince
Regent in 1819, who desired to commemorate the battle of Waterloo by
the production of a medal of surpassing magnitude and beauty. It was
intended for presentation to each of the allied sovereigns as well as
to the two commanders, Wellington and Blucher; but this object failed,
as Pistrucci, who was directed to execute the work, did not accomplish
the task till 1st January, 1849, and Wellington then alone survived.
This medal has not been issued, as the dies have never been hardened;
but it has been reproduced by the electro process, of which the above
is an example.

repulsed the attack of 4000 Ghazees. The defenders were natives, with
the exception of Captain J. H. Craigie commanding and a few English

to the Chinese.

    _Rev._ Within laurel-wreath, MEEANEE HYDERABAD. 1843; above,

Given to those who served at Meeanee, 17 Feb., and Hyderabad, 22

both victories were mainly due to the bravery of the men of the 22nd

1845; Aliwal, 28 Jun. 1846; and Sobraon, 10 Feb. 1846. If a soldier was
present at only one of the four actions, the decoration was awarded to
him without a clasp, the name of such action being inscribed in the
exergue on the reverse; but if the recipient served in more battles
than one, then for each engagement he received an additional clasp.
(See next medal.) This is a proof.

    591. Another: Aliwal and Sobraon, 1846. Same: but on reverse
    ALIWAL. 1846; wearer's name on edge. Silver. Size 1·4. By W.

    and TOULOUSE. Ribbon, crimson edged with blue.

Great disappointment having been expressed that no medal had been
awarded either to the army or navy for the numerous victories achieved
between 1793—1814, the Queen, 1st June, 1847, ordered that a medal
should be struck and bestowed upon any surviving officer or private
present at any battle or siege between those dates. For this purpose,
the above medal was struck. It carries 28 clasps, and the earliest
military service thus decorated is the campaign in Egypt 1801, which
was, however, not included in the general order, but was afterwards
granted under an order 12 Feb. 1850. A similar order was issued
regarding naval services, commencing with the capture of the French
frigate "Cleopatra," 18 June, 1793, and for which a separate medal was
struck, having on the reverse, Britannia seated on sea-horse, holding
trident and olive-branch. The medal above described is a proof, and has
only the clasps given for the principal engagements in the Peninsular

    593. Indian General Service, 1848. "For Meritorious Service."

Comm.-in-chief; in 1846—7, Colonel Robert Richardson and Colonel H.

In Dec. 1854 the Queen ordered that a medal should be struck to be
awarded, with clasps for ALMA and INKERMANN, to all such as were
present in either of those battles; that of BALAKLAVA was added in Feb.
1855; and that of SEBASTOPOL was given to all who served at the siege
between Oct. 1854 and Sep. 1855. The clasp for AZOFF is naval, and was
given to those who served under Sir Edmund Lyons and took part in the

    1271. Silver. Size 1·4. Ribbon, pink with green edges.

This medal was distributed by the Sultán to all the forces of the

    WYON. Silver. Size 1·4. By W. and L. C. Wyon. Clasp: PERSIA.

the general officers on the staff; those in silver-gilt, to the

the three Presidencies, the Residents at Hyderabad and Poonah; those
