1672 - William III, Prince of Orange, Stadtholder SOLD

This rare silver medal, possible by Nicholas Chevalier, commemorates the elevation of William, Prince of Orange, as the Stadtholder over Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Gelderland, and Overijssel of the Dutch Republic in 1672. As a Protestant, William participated in several wars against the powerful Catholic king of France, Louis XIV, in coalition with Protestant and Catholic powers in Europe. Many Protestants heralded him as a champion of their faith. Largely because of his reputation, William was able to take the British crowns when many were fearful of a revival of Catholicism under James II. William married Mary, daughter of James II of England, in 1677 and reigned in England and Ireland, following the Glorious Revolution, as joint monarch with his wife from 1689. The Latin legend on the reverse reads "Rule and Covers". The diameter is 39 mm and the condition Very Five. The medal has a bright tone. This medal has been sold.
