Hi all, I came across this site a few nights ago and have been searching the posts before posting this. I have a coin/medal given to me by my late grandmother about 18yrs ago and am now trying to find out if its worth hanging onto.


I have attached a scan of the item plus a letter from the University of Oxford coin room.


All help greatly appreciated.


Regards Steve..

Yes, you are correct. Commemorative medal for the Peace of Westfalia treaty signed at the monastery in Westfalia, on the 24 of Oct, 1648.


Here's a link to the actual accord:




Medals like this were often struck in silver and bronze as a commemorative, having been issued in later years. Medal is too nice for the contemporary era, so I am thinking 1848. Also, the medal looks like a bronze with a heavy patina. Maybe a copy sold to tourists?
