Laureate bust of Anne left, with lovelock on right shoulder and drapery, rev PIETAS AVGVSTÆ etc, Anne, enthroned, presents a charter to kneeling members of the clergy, 44mm (E 404; MI ii 251/44). Attractively toned, Croker was a well-known engraver of English coins and medals. Medal has gorgeous antique patina with tons of mint lustre and color. Subtle silvery gold toning, struck in high relief, the portrait by Croker seemingly in marble it's so three-dimensional. Queen Anne's Bounty was a fund established in 1704 to augment the incomes of the poorer clergy of the Church of England. The bounty was funded by the tax (annates) on the incomes of all Church of England clergy, which was paid to the Pope until the Reformation, and thereafter to the Crown. The subject of this medal came about via the lush politics of this period, when Marlborough trounced all continental enemies and the British home counties experienced dramatic employment on all fronts, not least of which was the war machine. The Royal Navy also experienced numerous triumphs, taking bounties such as the Vigo Bay treasure from foreign ships. Anne's reign was one of the fiscally richest in English history, and this lovely medal is a fitting tribute to it. (Images of the medal are cut off by the slab.)

The Peace of Hubertsburg (Hubertusburg) was a treaty which ended the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) between Prussia and Austria. In this war, which was a continuation of the War of Austrian Succession, France was allied with Austria, and Prussia with Great Britain. The goal of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria was to recover Silesia, which Prussia had captured from Austria during the war. However, the Peace of Hubertsburg allowed Prussia to retain Silesia, but in return it agreed to support the succession of Joseph II to the Imperial throne. The Peace of Hubertsburg, which was signed on the 15th of February 1763, as is indicated on this medal, left Germany divided between Austria and Prussia. The hostility between these two great German states powerfully influenced the whole future political development of Germany.

1781 MS63

Medal, 1781, WM, CAPTURE OF ST. EUSTATIUS, Great Britain/U.S. Revolutionary War, BHM-231 White Metal. NGC MS63, Cert# 3504352-005. Obv. Uniformed bust of G. B. (George Brydges) RODNEY, right, wearing tricorne hat; Rv. Nine Line Inscription, The / Glorious Memo. / of the 3r of Feb.1781 / When He Severely / Punished the Dutch / Upwards of 3 Millions / Of Value With 300 / Sail of Ships, Star, design below. The Capture of St. Eustatius took place in February 1781 during the American War of Independence when British army and naval forces under General John Vaughan and Admiral George Rodney seized the Dutch-owned Caribbean island of St. Eustatius. The capture was controversial in Britain, as it was alleged that Vaughan and Rodney had used the opportunity to enrich themselves and had neglected more important military duties. The island was subsequently taken by Dutch-allied French forces in late 1781, ending the British occupation. St. Eustatius was the center of Dutch trade and used both for the shipment of arms to the American colonists and for the victualing of French ships. In the autumn of 1780, when the Dutch joined the coalition against Great Britain, Admiral Rodney was ordered to seize the island. He appeared there with twelve ships on 3 February 1781 and, after a fierce engagement, succeeded in capturing it. A large quantity of munitions and merchandise consigned to General George Washington for the American cause was taken along with some 150 merchant ships, a sum totaling around £3 million. On account of this seizing, Rodney and his colleague, General Vaughan, were vilified by the Dutch, who even compared them to a contemporary Nero and Caligula.

MDCCXCIII. Ref: Jones (French Revolution), Figs. 5 & 18. History: Marie Antoinette (1755-1793), an Austrian princess, was never popular with the French public. (She was once to have exclaimed 'If I was not Queen, one would say that I had an insolent air'). She was often accused of putting Austrian interests ahead of those of her husband's kingdom. Her unpopularity was increased by her extravagant spending, which was often unfairly connected with the grave financial difficulties that beset France in the 1780s. This uncertain position put her in danger in the revolutionary period. This was not helped by her uncompromising stance to even the more moderate revolutionaries and her attempts at collusion with other European powers to try to suppress the insurgents. After the royal family failed to escape in 1791, and monarchy was abolished in 1792, Louis XVI was tried for treason and executed in January 1793. The former queen was tried by the National Assembly and executed on 16 October 1793. Manufacture of Medal: Heinrich Küchler, in partnership with the famous entrepreneur Matthew Boulton, produced this medal as a commercial speculation. Küchler came to work in London in March 1793, producing medals on the fate of Louis XVI, and expanded the cycle of subjects as they occurred. The British public, fascinated by the events in France, eagerly consumed revolutionary memorabilia. The medal was begun in October 1793, presumably days after the event, and issued in March 1794.

Her unpopularity was increased by her extravagant spending, which was often unfairly connected with the grave financial difficulties that beset France in the 1780s. This uncertain position put her in danger in the revolutionary period. This was not helped by her uncompromising stance to even the more moderate revolutionaries and her attempts at collusion with other European powers to try to suppress the insurgents. After the royal family failed to escape in 1791, and monarchy was abolished in 1792, Louis XVI was tried for treason and executed in January 1793. The former queen was tried by the National Assembly and executed on 16 October 1793. Manufacture of Medal: Heinrich Küchler, in partnership with the famous entrepreneur Matthew Boulton, produced this medal as a commercial speculation. Küchler came to work in London in March 1793, producing medals on the fate of Louis XVI, and expanded the cycle of subjects as they occurred. The British public, fascinated by the events in France, eagerly consumed revolutionary memorabilia. The medal was begun in October 1793, presumably days after the event, and issued in March 1794.

1794 1/2P Conder Token MS63BN

Medal (Token), 1794, Cu, QUEEN ELIZABETH I, PAYABLE AT DALLYS, Conder Token, Great Britain, Sussex-Brighton, D&H-15 1/2P, NGC MS63BN, Cert# 3590049-002. George III Era copper Conder token Halfpenny 1794, D&H-15, Sussex-Brighton, Dallys edge, MS63 BN, a bold beauty featuring a great portrait of Elizabeth I. Significance: Chichester Cross stands in the center of the city of Chichester, England at the intersection of the four principal streets. According to the inscription upon it, this cross was built by Edward Story, the bishop of Chichester from 1477 to 1503; but little is known for certain and the style and ornaments of the building suggest that it may be referred to the time of Edward IV. It was built so that the poor people should have somewhere to sell their wares. An earlier wooden cross had been erected on the same site by Bishop Rede (1369-1385). The stone cross was repaired during the reign of Charles II, and at the expense of the Duke of Richmond, in 1746 and stands to this day.

Obverse: View of St. Matthew's Church: “PAYABLE BY FLETCHER & SHARRATT”. Reverse: Legend on five lines within oak wreath: “WALSALL TOKEN ONE PENNY 1811”. Diagonally milled edge (/////). These were probably issued by Samuel Fletcher and Samuel Sharratt who were saddlers and iron-mongers with a business in Walsall. Difficult to find this nice. History of GB Tokens during this period: Between 1807 and 1821, no regal copper coins were struck resulting in a shortage of small change. This caused major problems, particularly in the growing industrial cities of the Midlands and north of England. For a period of 4 years, between 1811 and 1815, numerous factories, tradespeople and even workhouses issued tokens. The images depicted are generally of an industrial nature, showing factories and machinery, thus giving us a visual picture of the growing expansion of the machine age. They are particularly difficult to find in high grade.

1814 M62

Medal, 1814, AE, ALEXANDER I SOJOURN IN PARIS, Russian Empire, NGC MS62, Cert# 3786255-001. Size: 40 mm. By Andrieu. For Alexander’s Sojourn in Paris, 1814. Diakov 378.1, Reichel 3280, Sm--. Laureate head r., signed Andrieu F. on truncation, Denon. D. below / Genius seated l. inscribing tablet, signed Andrieu. F. and Denon. Dir. at edge. Lustrous dark toffee. History: In 1814, the Battle of Paris was fought. The defeat of the French in that fight became the direct cause for the downfall of the French Emperor Napoleon I Bonaparte. It came about as follows: In 1813, the French army was on its retreat from a luckless invasion of Russia. In October, the allied forces of Russians, Prussians, Austrians and Swedes crushed them in the Battle of Leipzig. Then the allied forces invaded France, and the end of March 1814 conquered the city of Paris. The Battle of Paris was waged under the lead of the Russian Tsar Alexander I, who had a personal score to settle with Napoleon: Not even one and a half years before, the French had taken Moscow; during the invasion the city had been burned. Just as Napoleon had entered Moscow, Tsar Alexander now entered Paris. A few days later Napoleon was forced to abdicate, and sent into exile on the island of Elba; his imperial title, he was allowed to keep.

Medal, 1814, AE, ALEXANDER I SOJOURN IN PARIS, Russian Empire, NGC MS62, Cert# 3786255-001. Size: 40 mm. By Andrieu. For Alexander’s Sojourn in Paris, 1814. Diakov 378.1, Reichel 3280, Sm--. Laureate head r., signed Andrieu F. on truncation, Denon. D. below / Genius seated l. inscribing tablet, signed Andrieu. F. and Denon. Dir. at edge. Lustrous dark toffee. History: In 1814, the Battle of Paris was fought. The defeat of the French in that fight became the direct cause for the downfall of the French Emperor Napoleon I Bonaparte. It came about as follows: In 1813, the French army was on its retreat from a luckless invasion of Russia. In October, the allied forces of Russians, Prussians, Austrians and Swedes crushed them in the Battle of Leipzig. Then the allied forces invaded France, and the end of March 1814 conquered the city of Paris. The Battle of Paris was waged under the lead of the Russian Tsar Alexander I, who had a personal score to settle with Napoleon: Not even one and a half years before, the French had taken Moscow; during the invasion the city had been burned. Just as Napoleon had entered Moscow, Tsar Alexander now entered Paris. A few days later Napoleon was forced to abdicate, and sent into exile on the island of Elba; his imperial title, he was allowed to keep.

Medal, 1826, WM, ERIE CANAL COMPLETION, New York, NY, So Called Dollar, HK-1 WM, NGC MS61, Cert# 1657081-001. Important and Historical Medal, Rarity-6. Obv. Two full seated figures depicting Pan and Neptune, to r. of Pan is cornucopia; in background is lighthouse and sea; below l. microscopic R. Del, below r. microscopic W. Sc.; above all, around Union of Erie with the Atlantic. Rv. In center is New York State Coat of Arms; to l. is section of Canal; in background is sailing ship and distant view of city; below 1826 / Presented by the City of New York; above all, around Erie Canal Comm. 4 July 1817 Comp. 26 Oct. 1825; microscopic C. C. Wright Sc just below center design. Size: About 45mm. Interestingly, concentric circular die, or lathe, lines cover most of the gray surfaces with the focus at the center of the die. Richard Snow, in his Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cents, second edition, Vol. II, 1859-1869 reference work, illustrates and discusses such lines on page 65. Happily, this Specimen does not exhibit any of the "bubbly" surfaces found on many of these medals, most likely from interaction of the medal surfaces with the wooden container that these originally came in. History: Medal issued by Common Council, City of New York; designed by Archibald Robertson; engraved by Charles Cushing Wright; struck by Maltby Pedetreau. Erie Canal Commission created 1810 by NY Legislature; DeWitt Clinton, later Governor, served as member 10 years without pay. Ground broken July 4, 1817, at Rome, NY. Over 8 years and $7,000,000 later, Canal stretched 364 miles "straight as the lay of the land would permit" from Hudson River to Lake Erie; 83 locks required for "greatest engineering feat of modern times…costliest, most successful project yet undertaken in the New World." Originally dubbed "Clinton's Folly" by many, Canal proved one of main factors in our national development by directly opening West to agriculture; reduced freight cost and time, Albany to Buffalo, from $100 per ton and 45 days (by wagon) to $5 and 6 days; passengers paid 5 cents per mile, including 3 meals daily. By 1836, tolls had paid off entire cost; made New York City first seaport in U.S., passing Philadelphia. Now part of NY Barge Canal System, original 40 ft. width and 4 ft. depth have been increased substantially. Formal opening was Oct. 26, 1825, with vessel Seneca Chief carrying Governor Clinton departing Buffalo; arrived New York City Nov. 4. Long water-parade behind "moved slowly" with banquets, parades, etc. "at every town" en route; climaxed by huge New York celebration early 1826. Fifty-one Gold medals struck; presented to "crowned heads of world and eminent men" including General Lafayette and 3 surviving signers of Declaration of Independence. "Several hundred" pieces struck in Silver and White Metal (pewter); presented to guests and officials. RARE.

Obv. a boar running to the left, on its flank MY THIRD HEAT, above MY VICTORY, below DOWN WITH THE BANK, around PERISH CREDIT. PERISH COMMERCE. 1834 below; Rv: Small military bust of Jackson in upper center, MY on his chest, EXPERIMENT MY CURRENCY MY GLORY below, MY SUBSTITUTE FOR THE U.S. BANK around. Attractive. Ex Heritage 1/2014, Lot 10812. History: The 1834 "Running Boar" Hard Times Token. Political discourse in the early 19th century was far more vitriolic than we have today for which this coin owes its origins. The huge fight between Jackson's Democratic party vs. the Federalists resulted in coins such as this one and in fact formed the root of the Republican party! Few presidential vetoes have caused as much controversy as the one Andrew Jackson sent to Congress on July 10, 1832. The veto of the bill to re-charter the United States Bank was the prelude to a conflict over fiscal policy that continued through Jackson's second term and climaxed during the mid-term elections of 1834. The controversy created the background for the issuance of clothing buttons, ribbons and a great many tokens by the Whig opposition. The first tokens appeared in city elections in New York, then later in state and congressional elections and represent some of the first examples of dirty politicking in America. J. Doyle DeWitt, in American Political Badges and Medals, writes: "Many of the political tokens...bore coarse and critical allusions to Jackson through the device of a hog and legends which continually repeated the word MY." (The Whigs accused Jackson of seeking dictatorial power by taking personal control of government assets.)

Doyle DeWitt, in American Political Badges and Medals, writes: "Many of the political tokens...bore coarse and critical allusions to Jackson through the device of a hog and legends which continually repeated the word MY." (The Whigs accused Jackson of seeking dictatorial power by taking personal control of government assets.)

Medal (Token), 1834, Cu, RUNNING BOAR HARD TIMES TOKEN, HT-9, DeWitt CE-1834-9, NGC AU58, Cert# 3607843-008. Obv. a boar running to the left, on its flank MY THIRD HEAT, above MY VICTORY, below DOWN WITH THE BANK, around PERISH CREDIT. PERISH COMMERCE. 1834 below; Rv: Small military bust of Jackson in upper center, MY on his chest, EXPERIMENT MY CURRENCY MY GLORY below, MY SUBSTITUTE FOR THE U.S. BANK around. Attractive. Ex Heritage 1/2014, Lot 10812. History: The 1834 "Running Boar" Hard Times Token. Political discourse in the early 19th century was far more vitriolic than we have today for which this coin owes its origins. The huge fight between Jackson's Democratic party vs. the Federalists resulted in coins such as this one and in fact formed the root of the Republican party! Few presidential vetoes have caused as much controversy as the one Andrew Jackson sent to Congress on July 10, 1832. The veto of the bill to re-charter the United States Bank was the prelude to a conflict over fiscal policy that continued through Jackson's second term and climaxed during the mid-term elections of 1834.
