The Captain's Naval Gold Medal awarded to Vice-Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood (1750-1810) for his services at the battle of the Glorious First of June, 1794. Obverse: Britannia, a spear in her left hand and a shield below, standing on the deck of an antique galley, her right foot resting on a helmet, crowned with a wreath by a winged victory. Reverse inscribed: ' CUTHBERT COLLINGWOOD ESQUIRE CAPTAIN OF H.M.S. THE BARFLEUR ON THE I JUNE MDCCXCIV THE FRENCH FLEET DEFEATED'.
