In 1823 his son George IV gave the British Museum his father’s superb library together with his collection of coins and medals. The late King’s passion meant that his collection of over 15,000 medals was, and still is, the single largest acquisition of medals made by the British Museum.
Carved with the fine detail and intricacy of a medallist, this miniature portrait bust of George III portrays the monarch with all of the concerns of his last years.
