Value of 1677 Victory at Tabago Medal

This medal commemorated the successful French victory over the Dutch at Tobago. Obverse, featured a bust of Louis XIV, facing to the right. Around his head his title reads, “Louis XIV, The Great King”. Under the bust is an “N” for Nyris, a French die-sinker. Reverse, stands a winged Victory on a small boat. Clouds dot the horizon behind her. In her right hand she holds a cluster of arrows, and in her left she holds a palm branch. Her skirt blows in the wind to the right, and her face turns in the same direction. Around her figure is written, “The fleet of the Dutch burned at Tobago, 1677.”
