- Medallic Illustrations 2, published in 1885, states:
Executed by John Croker. Two dies were prepared for striking the obverse of this medal; they are easily distinguished by the absence on one of them of the ear-ring (for examples with an ear-ring see registration nos. G3,E.M.237 & 281). On 17 April, 1702, the Queen invested her husband, George, Prince of Denmark, with the title of Generalissimo of all her forces by sea and land, and soon afterwards, on 21 May, he was made Lord High Admiral of England and Ireland.
