Another nice medallic George, this one depicting the young Prince of Whales, as George IV was informally known around his sceptred isles during his dissolute Regency.

This 41mm piece, dated 1816, was engraved by Mills and struck by Thomason to more or less contemporaneously celebrate the last two Treaties of Paris (1814-15). Those were the treaties that definitively wrapped up the Napoleonic Wars, the latter of the two following close after Wellington's glorious victory at Waterloo. Prince George got some of the credit for this because the terms of his Regency had him essentially running the government (but loosely, through ministers) on behalf of his dad the King, who was fading in and out of intermittent periods of illness and/or reclusivity.

This was one of 40 different medals commemorating various British Military and Navy Victories, issued in 1820 and known now as Mudie's National Series.



1814/1815 Great Britian, Prince George, Treaty Of Paris, AE Medal, Mudie's National Series, Mudie-29, BHM-892, Bramsen-1784.

If it's OK to step away from British royalty for a moment...

Here's a 1900 Lafayette dollar, part of the US commemorative coin series. The coin depicts George Washington (forward portrait) and Frenchman Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette who was instrumental in helping the American forces defeat the British in the US' Revolutionary War.

(FWIW: I have it on good authority that Martha thought her George was "gorgeous." )

Another dip into the classic era of US commemorative coins for the 1926 American Independence Sesquicentennial 50-cent piece. The coin features conjoined portraits of George Washington (the first US President) and Calvin Coolidge (the US President at the time of the 150th anniversary).
