Jean Dassier, of Geneva, 1676-1763, was one of the most enterprising and prolific medaliists of the eighteenth century. He published his series of the medals of the Kings and Queens of England in 1731, dedicating it to George II. The medals were available individually and as complete sets. They were struck in bronzed-copper, damascened copper (the relief gilded in contrast to bronzed fields) and silver. Individual damascened and silver examples are rare, complete sets are of great rarity. The dies for the medals were eventually purchased by Sir Edward Thomason of Birmingham. He reissued the medals circa 1820. New obverse dies were also modelled after the originals and used to strike sets in whitemetal with new reverses that carried an inscription describing notable events of the reign of the individual depicted on the obverse.
