Any more information would help. One side has 'Sic Regna Resurgere Fas Est' on top and ' in memor. coronationis Aug D XXIX Jun MDCCCIX. ORDD R' on the bottom.

The other side seems to have melted wax and paper glued on by the wax. Three quarters of the paper is gone but it would be great to know why it was there in the first place.

The medal seems to be made of lead. Weight is 42g and diameter 59mm.

If I have this right it is says "Thus the kingdom continues which is correct" You state it is lead so my guess it is a test or submission piece from the artist. That could also explain the wax and paper on the reverse. It was likely an attempt to preserve the lead from corrosion (lead Oxide I think it is called)

Made by Frumerie, M. in 1809
"The King, in coronation dress , sitting on his throne, crowned by the Archbishop and the Registrar Prime Minister. Alongside stands the queen in the princely crown."
The 'collectible' ones are made of silver but there where lead ones to =)

Thank you both for the information, it helps! So would the silver ones or the lead ones be more common?
