Cast zinc alloy replica or copy of a medallion or perhaps a fragment of a medallion, with the busts of William and Mary (1688-1694) facing each other on the obverse and a coat of arms, similar to that used on their guineas and half guineas, on the reverse. The busts are each within a beaded oval which are linked together by an attachment which may mimic a clasp or hinge so that the impression is meant to look like an open locket. The replica has been made up to two halves which have been glued together, and this tacky material still survives around the edge of the object. The coat o…

A copper alloy medallion dating to the 18th century. The medallion celebrates Admiral Vernons victories over the Spanish colonies in South America during the 'War of Jenkins' Ear. He took Portobello with 6 ships on 22/11/1739. There were loads of different medals issued to commemorate it - your one shows Admiral Vernon on one side standing between a cannon and a ship; on the other side there are six ships entering a harbour. The 'War of Jenkins' Ear' was fought between Britain and Spain in the period 1739-1748. It was essentially a conflict over shipping and trading rights, the no…

Cast lead alloy medallion or medal of probable late post medieval date or early modern date (post 1558 - 1850). The medallion is circular in plan with a raised outer border. The medal has been slightly twisted and distorted and the detail decoration on the front face has been removed through a combination of corrosion and abrasion. The reverse is relatively flat and plain although decorative detail may have been lost. A small oval hole has been pierced in the upper section of the medal (2.2mm x 1.8mm) presumably to either suspend or fix to another object. The hole is not original and …

A lead alloy medallion or pendant which is probably modern, perhaps dating from the Victorian period. It has a diameter of 39.7mm and is 3.5mm thick. The medallion is gilded and decorated on both faces but the poor quality of the alloy means that much of the detail is illegible. The obverse bears a large central cross potent with five pellets in each angle. There is also a legend round the edge which is illegible. The reverse shows a coat of arms with a crown above and emblems to the side. This is believed to be the royal arms of Portugal. It is likely that this medallion is based upon…
