1783 Treaty of Paris Medal. MS65 NGC.
Choice brilliant unblemished surfaces. Early die state. An exceptionally pleasing well struck piece worthy of the most discerning collection, and finer than any in the renowned John J. Ford sale. There is no explanation for why these medals were made with a tiny brass plug at six o’clock.
This medal was struck to commemorate the 1783 Treaty of Paris. The treaty formally ended the American Revolutionary War between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the United States of America that had rebelled against their rule starting in 1775. The obverse depicts Peace with an olive branch greeting America who holds a pole with Liberty cap; at their feet are shields of Great Britain, France, Spain and the Netherlands. In the exergue is the legend PRUDENTIA-FATIS (By Prudence and the Fates). On the reverse Peace tramples on War lying prostrate with a broken sword in his right hand.
