1589 Defeat Of The Spanish Armada Depicting Queen Elizabeth I

This scarce and very desirable medal is in copper measuring 1.1/8th inches in diameter (30mm) and in very good condition. It has circulation wear commensurate with age but all details, date and legends are clear and legible.

Description - Defeat of the Spanish Armada and Public Thanksgiving, Obverse - 1589, Elizabeth 1 seated in a carriage holds a palm branch and open prayer book with legend "1589. TANDEM BONA CAUSA TRIUMPHAT", ( AT LENGTH THE GOOD CAUSE TRIUMPHS). Reverse - A tree in which sit three young birds in a nest protecting themselves from a bird of prey with legend "SI NON VIRIBUS AT CAUSA POTIORES," ( IF NOT IN STRENGTH, YET IN OUR CAUSE MORE POWERFUL).
This medal probably alludes to the Queen's solemn procession in a triumphal car to St. Paul's, to return public thanks.

A fabulous medal for the serious historical medal collector and fully guaranteed to be genuine & authentic.

Mailing cost by tracked mailing from Franc to the U.K will be 5.00p
