Belgium. Galvanoplactic medal set after Medal, General Life & Fire Insurance Company Medal, 1838. By J. P. Braemt (No Reserve Price)

Galvanoplastic medal set (2) after : General Life & Fire Insurance Company Medal, 1838. By J. P. Braemt. Obverse: Female figure seated left on safe, head right, holding scroll and resting hand upon youth standing to left; lightning striking above, burning building to right / COMPAGNIES D'ASSURANCES GÉNÉRALES, CONTRE / L'INCENDIE / ET / SUR LA VIE in four lines; ÉTABLIES À BRUXELLES in exergue. Edge: Plain. In the context of medals and coins, galvanoplastic refers to a method of reproduction or replication using electroplating techniques. Galvanoplastic reproduction involves creating a mold, typically made of wax or another suitable material, which is then coated with a conductive layer, such as graphite or metallic powder. This conductive layer allows the mold to conduct electricity. Next, the mold is submerged in an electrolytic bath containing a solution of metal ions, such as gold, silver, or copper. When an electric current is passed through the bath, metal ions are deposited onto the conductive mold, gradually forming a layer of metal that replicates the original design.Once the desired thickness of metal has been deposited, the replica is carefully removed from the mold. The result is a faithful reproduction of the original design, with intricate details faithfully replicated in the final metal product. Galvanoplastic reproduction is commonly used in the production of medals, coins, and other objects where precise replication of intricate designs is required. Galvanoplastic reproduction is frequently performed by artists, designers, museums, and researchers. It allows them to create faithful replicas of original artworks, medals, coins, and other objects with intricate designs. This technique is particularly useful for preserving and disseminating cultural heritage, as it enables the production of multiple copies while safeguarding the integrity of the original piece. In addition to the replication process, it's common to find an old catalog number on the reverse side of galvanoplastic reproductions. This number serves as a reference point for cataloging and identifying the reproduction within a collection or archive. It helps maintain accurate records and facilitates research and documentation of the reproduced objects
