A medal by the famous Augsburg medal maker Philipp Heinrich Müller for Archbishop Lothara Franz von Schönborn of Mainz. It was probably made on the declaration of peace in Rijswijk in 1697, at the end of the Nine Years War. On the front is the archbishops bust in rich clothing and on the reverse are allegorical female figures representing Peace with the horn of plenty and Concord with a winged staff and two serpents.
