    Betts-22 1624 Dutch Naval Victories Medal

    Betts-22. 1624 Dutch Naval Victories. Silver. XF. 69.5 mm, 3.1 mm thick, 85.6 gm. Medal turn. Facing armored bust with name and titles in fine script of Maurits Prince of Orange, Count of Nassau and Governor of the United Provinces within an ornate circle of the Arms of the seven Dutch provinces. Dominating the reverse are the crowned oval Arms of Orange-Nassau within the British Order of the Garter above motto Je Maintiendray, and minuscule 16 Cum Privil 24 at base. This medal is a classic of the Dutch historical series. Betts noted that this triumphal design commemorated Dutch naval victories under Admiral L'Hermite off Lima, Peru, and off the coast of Brazil by Admiral Willens. The edge of this specimen bears an incused groove that superficially resembles a seam, but the planchet is solid with proper "ring" and overall weight.
    Ex: Museum of Connecticut History; Coin Galleries (7/1998), lot 1302.
    From The John W. Adams Collection.
