Hammer Price:

1820. Spain. New Constitution, large bronze box medal by Henrionnet, bust of Ferdinand VII to left, reverse legend within wreath, 71mm, 15mm thick. About extremely fine and rare (£100-120)

The first example seen by the cataloguers, and most unusual in a Spanish context; Henrionnet was a French medallist and this medal was perhaps commissioned by liberal supporters of the constitutional reform in Spain.
