- Medallic Illustrations 2, published in 1885, states:
This medal was executed by Christian Wermuth, and is described in his Catalogue, 1713, No. 20, p. 22. It was, as appears by the inscription, struck upon the same occasion as Medallic Illustrations 2, published in 1885, states: p309.129 (registration no. M.8074); but the States of Holland are expressly mentioned because they were joint guarantors with Queen Anne in the League formed for the protection and advancement of the Protestant interests in all parts of Europe.
