- Brown 1980 states:
A further Peace Treaty was signed with France on 20th November 1815, after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo. By this treaty France was confined to her old frontiers held in 1790 and deprived of the additions granted to her in 1814. A levy of 700,000,000 francs was imposed upon France as a contribution towards the allied costs of the war; the amount was to be paid within five years.
One of Mudie's National Medals (see Brown 1 p256.1057) issued in 1820. Examples of this medal are believed to have been struck in gold but no specimen has been met with See also note to Brown 1 p193.802.

- The Bank of England loaned their Collection to the British Museum in 1865 wishing to make it accessible to the general public. This remained as a separate Collection until 1877 when the Bank Directors decided it would be more useful to the museum and the public if incorporated into the national collection. The Bank of England collection was therefore presented to the British Museum in 1877, any duplicates being sold to create a coins and medals purchase fund.
