Treaties of Paris, 1814-1815.

Treaties of Paris, 1814-1815, Silver Medal by G Mills and [reverse] NGA Brenet, bust of Prince George Regent, rev. Peace with victor's wreaths amidst trophies, ARMIS ET CONSILIIS, 41mm (BHM 892; Eimer 1080). A few minor imperfections, otherwise extremely fine with beautiful tone, rare in silver.

As well as ending the war between France and the Sixth Coalition, the Paris Treaty of 1814 also included a clause furthering efforts towards the eventual total abolition of slavery:

"His most Christian majesty, concurring without reserve in the sentiments of his Britannic majesty, with respect to a description of traffic repugnant to the principles of natural justice of the enlightened age in which we live, engages to unite all his efforts to those of his Britannic majesty, at the approaching congress, to induce all the powers of Christendom to decree the abolition of the slave-trade, so that the said trade shall cease universally, as it shall cease definitively, under any circumstances, on the part of the French government, in the course of five years; and that during the said period, no slave merchant shall import or sell slaves, except in the colonies of the state of which he is a subject." - Treaty of Paris 1814, Additional Article I.
