This is the first substantive display of these medals which capture moments in history commemorating the Reformation, Mary Queen of Scots, the Union of the Crowns, the Civil War, the campaigns of William II/III, the victories of Queen Anne’s reign, the Act of Union, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Culloden and the Enlightenment.
