Both parties celebrate the peace. The Spanish delegation immediately has a commemorative medal struck in Münster. It shows the Spanish lion with a sceptre in his claws and the Dutch lion holding a bundle of arrows jointly pulling a chariot of victory over weapons strewn on the ground. In Amsterdam the City Council joyfully issues a medal bearing the Latin text, ‘One peace is worth more than countless victories.’
