Just like his fellow craftsman Philipp Heinrich Müller, the Nuremberg medallist Georg Hautsch (1659–1745) worked for many of the European courts. For instance, he made medals commemorating the victory of Charles XII. After the Battle of Poltava took place, he received an order from Peter the Great and produced medals commemorating the victory of the Russian army as well.
