Dutch medal commemorating the defeat of the Spanish Armada, 1588

Recommended Posts

I know pretty much what this is, but not when this restrike was made. It's made of pewter which is hard wearing, but it shows signs of wear. The most obvious dates for a reissue would be 1888 or 1988. Does anyone have any info?
