- Medallic Illustrations 1, published in 1885, states:
This fine medal by John Roettier is not scarce. The dies are in the British Museum. Mr. Hodsol had one of gold, but it has disappeared, probably through the crucible, the usual fate of large gold medals. See Medallic Illustrations 1, p328.169 (registration no. M.7212) for another medal of the Duke of Lauderdale.
See Pinkerton, J., ‘The Medallic History of England to the Revolution’, London, 1790 (fol.), xxxvi. 2.
