Leicester was considered the great champion of Protestantism and is therefore placed by the side of Elizabeth I, who is offering her sword of assistance to the United Provinces. On the reverse, the Provinces are reminded that God must be their mainstay, however valuable the sword of Elizabeth I may be. This medal was struck as a counter to publicise the good relations between England and the United Provinces and the support England was giving to the United Provinces against Spain.
