Battle of the Nile
This was the personal award, produced by Matthew Boulton , sponsored by Alexander Davison, Nelson's prize agent.
Bronze gilt examples were awarded to petty officers.
Boulton spent so much time with this medal, checking that the design for the battle formation was correct and seeking perfection that as a business enterprise it's success was marginal. However, such was the quality of the work that the advertising potential for his reputation as a medal producer was enormous.
