Rare 1731 Jean Dassier Medal King James Ii Iacobus Ii D G Mag Br Fr Et Hib Rex:
Up For Consideration...
Here is a very nice old commemorative medal,in quite splendid condition overall
King James II
Measuring Approx. 1 & 9/16" across.
This attractive and well-made English patriotic piece shows just light wear, and it has good color, made of a white metal, with a cast appearance to it. Some light marks and tiny imperfections are nothing overly distracting.
I believe this to be from the Thomason Medallic royal set of medals issued about 1820, replicating the early Dassier set of medals of English Kings and Queens originally struck in 1731 by Jean Dassier.
On the Front:Armored bust of James II facing left.IACOBUS . II . D . G . MAG . BR . FR . ET . HIB : REX
(James II, by the grace of God, king of Great Britain, France and Ireland).
Religion is seated on a square tomb mouring amid various symbols of the Catholic Church. The front is inscribed: NAT. 13. OCT . 1633 . CORONAT . 23. APR . 1685 . MORT . 5 . SEPT . 1701. (Born 13 OCtober 1633, crowned 23 April 1685, died 5 September 1701). MI II 215/537, Eimer 384, Eisler 263/29.
