inscribed on reverse: His Most Gracious Majesty King George the third and His Royal Consort. Their Majesties are most Humbly dedicated to all their subjects of the British Empire to commemorate their happy union which took place Sep 8 1761. They under Divine providence have continued a pattern of Virtue in the completion of the FIFTIETH or JUBILEE Year of the Reign Oct. 25th 1810. Over their Heads Fame flies proclaiming to the World England's Sovereign the Nation's Pride.

Holden was a fine engraver, and the original profiles from which he made his prints were no doubt well drawn. The Star of the Garter worn by the King is well depicted, as are the shirt frill and the details of the Windsor uniform.

Some minor staining in the borders
