- Medallic Illustrations 2, published in 1885, states:
Struck on the same occasion as Medallic Illustrations 2, published in 1885, states: p595.244, and expressive of much the same sentiment, that the continued happiness of the kingdom might be expected from the birth of the royal infant. These hopes were not so realized, as the Prince died when about two years old, 3 June [N. S.] 1747.
