Medal commemorating the Battle of Quiberon Bay, 1759; obverse
Medal commemorating the Battle of Quiberon Bay, 1759. Obverse: Britannia, armed with trident and shield, seated (right) upon a sea horse, is crowned by Victory. Legend: 'BRITAIN . TRIVMPHED . HAWKE . COMMANDED'. Exergue: 'OFF . BELLEISLE NOV . XX . MDCCLIX.' Reverse: 'NIGHT' and 'TEMPEST' interpose to shield 'FRANCE' from the assault of 'BRITAIN'. France, one foot on the rock and the other on the figure of Tempest, leans upon his useless sword and protects himself with his shield against Britannia, who, with her foot upon the prow of a ship, launches her thunder against him.
