Die Medaillen auf die Personalunion und auf den Regierungsantritt Georgs I.

Translated title of the contribution: The medals on the Hanoverian succession in 1714

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


At the turn of the century, medals and medallic collections proliferated, and any important event was commemorated in metal. None more so, however, than George I’s succession and coronation in 1714, which led to twelve different coinages, some part of the official propaganda in London and Hanover, and even more produced “on spec” by medallic entrepreneurs to satisfy the collectors’ market. The article provides a concise and comprehensive analysis of this output. It was commissioned for a special issue of the “Neues Archiv für Niedersachsen”, published in celebration of the anniversary of the Hanoverian Succession.
