RSC 0038bRome.jpg

Gallienus 253-268
A greatly underrated emperor, Gallienus was the son of Valerian I and was named Caesar at his fathers accession to the throne in 253 A.D. Upon his fathers capture by the Parthians he assumed the rank of Augustus and began numerous reforms and military campaigns to defend the empire, as much from usurpers as from barbarians. At the same time he presided over perhaps the last flowering of classical Roman culture, patronising poets, artists and philosophers. Gallienus was assassinated while besieging Milan.

Medals by St. Urbain.


Ferdinand de Saint Urbain (1658-1738) was one of the best known medallists of the end of the seventeenth and first four decades of the eighteenth century. He was born in Nancy and studied drawing and painting, but on the invasion of Lorraine by foreign armies, he left his native country and traveled through Germany and Italy where he began to practice the art of die-engraving. Although largely self-taught, he soon obtained official recognition as a medallist. In 1673 he was appointed Mint Engraver at Bologna, and later went to Rome where Innocent XI placed him at the head of the Papal coinage with the title of Chief Engraver and Architect. After a stay of over thirty years in Italy, he returned to Nancy. In 1707 he was appointed Engraver to the Mint, where he executed most of the coinage for Duke Leopold of Lorraine. Many of his finest medals were also executed in Nancy, including his Series of the Dukes and Duchesses of Lorraine, the Medallic Series of the Regency of the Duke of Orleans, and the Medallic Series of Popes.

St. Urbain was a member of most of the Italian Academies and of many other European ones, and he was decorated by Clement XII with the Order of Christ. (Forrer V, p.305)

RSC1 Plautilla UNC.jpg

Plautilla (born c185-189 was the daughter of the immensely wealthy and powerful Praetorian Prefect Plautianus. She was married to Caracalla in 202 A.D. to both partners' mutual disgust. Their hatred for one another was so intense that they lived in different palaces and the marriage was likely never consummated. After the fall and execution of her father in 205, Plautilla was exiled to the Lipari islands and executed in 212 A.D.
A fascinating Empress, with a sad story and beautiful coinage.

The Mudie Series


MUDIE'S NATIONAL MEDALS is a set of 40 medals issued in 1820 to celebrate the most important military and naval events during the reign of George III. The medals were published by James Mudie and struck at Edward Thomason's manufactory in Birmingham. They were produced in silver and bronze and although the prospectus also states that they were available in gold, no specimen has of yet been found. The complete set was issued in a gilt-tooled leather case (usually either green or red) in the form of a book with one velvet lined interior tray holding twenty medals and the base of the box forming a second tray holding twenty medals. The medals were struck mainly from dies engraved in France.

All medals are bronze unless stated otherwise, and 41mm in diameter.
