This medal is by John Croker and commemorates the Battle of Cape Passaro in 1718. The obverse depicts a bust of King George I and the reverse depicts a rostral column decorated with ship's hulls and surmounted by a statue of the king as Neptune, standing among a pile of trophies. Legend: 'SOCIORVM . PROTECTOR.' (The protector of the allies). Exergue: 'CLASSE . HISP . DELETA . AD . ORAS . SICILIAE . 1718.' (The Spanish fleet destroyed off the coast of Sicily, 1718.)

Thanks. It was struck in 1718 shortly after the battle I'm assuming.
