Coin Resource Center Includes Entry on Admiral Vernon Medals

Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ Coin Resource Center includes entries on early Numismatic Americana, specifically Early American and Betts Medals. One interesting series covered in this section is Admiral Vernon Medals. Produced from 1739 to 1741 to commemorate the Caribbean naval campaign waged by British Admiral Edward Vernon in 1739, the series presents a considerable challenge to researchers and collectors, with more than 150 known varieties. Our guide serves as an effective, well-organized primer on the series.

The page on the series overall includes a brief, readable history of Admiral Vernon, his exploits at Porto Bello, and the complex series of commemorative medals they spawned. The entries on the dozens of known varieties are organized by date of issue and variety attribution numbers, with discussions of each variety’s distinguishing features and collectability. Like other CRC listings, the entries for Admiral Vernon medals include high-quality images and links to recent auction appearances.

The CRC is an evolving database, and we welcome edits from knowledgeable readers. Links included in the guide and entries let readers get in touch with us. If readers have Admiral Vernon Medals, other links will allow them to contact us to schedule appointments or consultations.
