Charles I, Return to London from Edinburgh, 1633.

Charles I (1625-1649), Return to London from Edinburgh, 1633, cast and chased silver medal by Nicholas Briot (?), king on horseback left CAROLVS AVGVSTISS'. ET INVICTISS'. MAG'. BRIT'. FRAN'. ET HIB'. MONARCHA., in exergue. 1633, rev. view of the city of London including the Thames and London Bridge, AT VRBEM *E* SOL ORBEM REDIENS SIC REX ILLVMINAT VRBEM., 42mm, 14.49g (Eimer 124b; MI i 266/62). Extremely fine.

The medal commemorates Charles's return to London after his coronation in Scotland. Although generally attributed to Nicholas Briot, Christopher Eimer notes there are stylistic differences between this and Briot's signed medals, and suggests the dies may have been the work of Royal Mint Chief Engraver, Edward Green.
