About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

To immortalize the successful Waterloo campaign, the Duke of Wellington suggested that special medals be prepared. One of these was the famous Waterloo medal, to be given to all British soldiers. The other was intended to be much grander, a huge medal in solid gold given only to Allied monarchs, Generals, and other elites.But this medal would end up a costly failure, not being issued for 200 years.
