|1066 - 1966 Battle of Hastings Gold Medals by Spink|
A portrait of William the Conqueror, enthroned, seated on a simple stool, beneath two decorated arches, supported by four columns. The legend which appears on the broad raised rim, reads:
WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR
The engravers signature "COLLINGE" appears vertically to the right of the stool leg.
A map or view of the English Channel, showing four sailing ships (galleys). To the North is shown Hasting and Pevensey, to the South, Normandy, Bayeux and Rouen are marked.
The legend reads:
THE LAST INVASION OF BRITAIN
THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS
The edge is plain, apart from a serial number, 372 on our featured specimen, and a London hallmark with date letter k, the maker's or sponsor's mark S & Sn.

Fineness = Alloy = millesimal fineness, and carats.
Gold Content = Fine gold content in troy ounces.
* Issue Limit. Although the issue limit is stated as 300 pieces of each medallion, several specimens we have seen bear number higher than 300! We assume there is a perfectly logical and valid reason for this, and do believe that the issue limit is correct, but the numbering system itself was rather quirky.
We note that Fearon quotes the diameters of these medallions as 58 and 40mms, whereas we have measured them at 57 and 38mms.

We Buy Medals & Medallions
We make an active market in medals and medallions, whether individually, or in complete sets and collections. Buying and selling prices vary with the market price of silver (or gold where appropriate).
The secondary (secondhand) market prices for silver medallions is usually quite competitively priced, and for connoisseurs of medallic or numismatic art, previously owned medallion sets often represent a bargain especially compared with the original new prices.
