elverno;1812 Loge de l'ardente amitié de Rouen, France.;Group 9: Exonumia

http://omnicoin.com/coins/898246.jpg

 

All Masonic medals from the Napoleonic era qualify as RR+. This one hails from the collection of Prince Victor Napoleon, sometimes known as Napoleon V to supporters. His collection came in part from Napoleon I's personal collection but there's no indication in this pieces' provenance as to when and where to came into his collection.

 

Marvin's book on Masonic medals describes it as follows:

 

"Obverse, On the left, an altar surrounded by a garland, and having on it three burning hearts. At the foot of the altar are the square, compasses, level, and plumb. Above, on the right, a radiant triangle. In exergue, ARDENTE AMITIE O.-. DE ROUEN. in two lines.

Reverse, A leafless tree, over which an ivy vine has grown. Legend, LA MORT MEME NE L'EN A PAS SEPARE. [Death itself has not separated them.] This is an octagonal jeton, and was probably struck about 1812. Silver. Size 20."

His sizes were in sixteenths of an inch.

costanius; JOHN TRUMBULL AMERICAN ART-UNION 1849; Group 9: Exonumia

 

http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/963445.jpg

 

JOHN TRUMBULL AMERICAN ART-UNION 1849. Bronze 65mm by Charles Cushing Wright (1796-1854) modeled from a portrait by Robert Ball Hughes (1806-1868). This was the 3rd & last medal in the First American Medal Series to be struck in America by the U.S. Mint. The medals were designed by Peter Paul Duggan (c1800-1861).

 

Being issued as part of a lottery the anti-lottery laws put an end to this series of medals, which, judging by the artistry of this medal is a shame.

elverno;1809 Loge des Sept Ecossais réunis, France.;Group 9: Exonumia

http://omnicoin.com/coins/898251.jpg

 

Another rare Masonic medal from the collection of Prince Victor Napoleon, known as Napoleon V.

It is described as follows:

"Obverse, Within a ring formed by a serpent, having its tail in its mouth, a cross patee gules, surmounted by a smaller cross bottone argent. Legend, SEPT ECOSSAIS REUNIS O.*. DE PARIS.

Reverse, The square and compasses, enclosing a star of seven points bearing the letter G. Between the points are flames ; around the star are figures in the following order, beginning at the top, under the head of the compasses, 7, 5, 3, 1, 6, 4, 2, which are placed on the inner edge of a glory of sixteen points, surrounding the star, and the rays of which are surmounted by the square and compasses. Legend, LA DOUCE ET CONFIANTE AMITE LES UNIT 5809. [sweet and trusting friendship unites them.J Copper silvered. Size 19. This Lodge was instituted February 4, 1809."

 

Obviously it was also produced in copper. I bought the better part of Victor Napoleon's Masonic collection from a dealer several years ago. Individual pieces only appear every two or three years. The Reunited Seven Scotsmen produced a beautiful medal.

elverno;1804 L'École des Mines du Mont-Blanc, France.;Group 9: Exonumia

http://omnicoin.com/coins/913944.jpg

 

In 1818 Captain Laskey wrote in part about this medal:

"This medal was struck on the establishment of schools for the instruction of students in the art of mining and mineralogy.

...

There is a modern statue, representing the Apennine mountains, by John de Bologna, at Florence, designated Father Apenninus; it represents the loftiest of the ridge of these mountains, which runs through the middle of Italy, from Liguria to Ariminum and Ancona, and joins the Alps. If standing erect, it proportional height would be about sixty feet. We are not quite certain if this is not the representation of this statue, and depicted here as the hoary headed Mont-Blanc, whose bald summit penetrates the clouds."
