(very hard to find and much more so in this excellent state of preservation). Excerpted, with permission for this listing, from the book.The Coins of Queen Isabel II of Spain. This award medal was given by the Royal Academy of History to persons recognized for their skill or contributions. It bears a beautiful depiction of Queen Isabel II engraved by Luis Marchionni. This bust is the same style as that seen on M1850AE-LM-Isabel II and on the medal commemorating the Queen's visit to the new Madrid mint (M1862AE- QueenMintVisit).
A beautiful medal that clearly demonstrates Marchionni's engraving skill. Other than those in the inventory of the Royal Academy of History and the Patrimonio Nacional in Spain these are rarely seen in uncirculated condition. In fact, despite the seemingly common purpose of this medal, examples in any condition are seldom seen in the market. This item is part of a Special Collection we are offering.
