Capture of Minorca
Eimer notes that a note in the manuscript catalogue of Sarah Banks, whose collection was bequeathed to the British Museum soon after this time, states that this medal was awarded by the magistrates in Minorca, which had been captured by the British under the command of Earl St. Vincent on 15th November 1798. It was subsequently relinquished as part of the terms of the Peace of Amiens in 1802.
