Value of 1760 George II Indian Trade Medal

This medal is one of the early British-Indian peace medals and very similar to the previous versions. On the obverse is depicted George II, in armor, facing to the left while wearing a laurel crown. Encircling his image is his title. Reverse depicts a small native on the right of coin, shooting at a small deer, which is standing at the left of the medal. The arrow flies at the deer as the deer attempts to run away. Surrounding the Indian and the deer are two trees that nearly wrap around the medal. While not dated, records indicate this medal was struck sometime between 1714 and 1727.

The obverse text reads as follows: Georgius II D. G. Mag. Br. Fr. Et Hib. Rex.
