- Curator's comments
- Brown 1980 states:
One of Mudie's National Medals (see Brown 1 p256.1057) issued in 1817. Examples of this medal are believed to have been struck in gold but no specimen has been met with. The reverse of this medal implies that Religion, Integrity and Constancy have brought England through the dangers until 1817.
The Ashmolean Museum has a mule of the obverse of this piece and the obverse of No. 28 in the Mudie series (catalogue No. 776).

- Acquisition notes
- 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.
