|The Very Highest Quality Medallions...|
|Victoria Coronation Medallion 1837|
Young head of Victoria, facing left, with her hair in her familiar "bun", with two ribbons. This portrait is very similar to that which appears on the young head coinage of Victoria engraved by the Wyon's.
VICTORIA D.G. BRITANNIARUM REGINA F.D.
The reverse shows Victoria enthroned and being crowned. The scene takes place on a rocky island, undoubtedly portraying Britain. She is attended by three other figures, one of whom appears like Britannia on is holding a standard. On the lower level are figures representing Neptune, god of the sea, and another figure probably Felicitas, or happiness, holding a caduceus and pouring out a cornucopia.
At the sides of the rock are two ships.
