'Mariage de Louis XVI et Marie Antoinette'

An April 1770 Austrian medal minted by Roettiers, on the marriage of Marie-Antoinette the "sister of Emperor Joseph II" by proxy with the future Louis XVI in the Augustinerkirche of Vienna.

Here the young couple (who had not yet met) are shown at the altar of Vesta with goddesses representing their countries.
