Peace with Sweden Jeton, 1790.
In silver. Approx. 22 mm diameter. Weight 4.0 g. The obverse
shows florals and the motto "Neighborly and Eternal". On the
reverse, inscription "Peace with Sweden Signed on 3 August
Fine condition. Heavy wear throughout and traces of impact to
the lower part. However the inscription is fully legible and
most of the details of the artwork are fully discernable,
including the beaded edge.
The jeton was reportedly awarded to officials and noblemen
invited to the festivities marking the signing of the peace
treaty. A nice companion piece to medals of Catherine the
Great period, such as the Medal for Bravery in Finnish Waters
or the Medal for Peace with Sweden (the latter was awarded
only to combatants).
