The Oak Island
I was able to make this important discovery because my Grandmother guided me towards the light 27 years ago. She taught me many fascinating things about the Oak Island and these secret medallions. She gave me a similar medallion and explained the esoteric meanings of Lady Liberty and the Liberty Cap. As of the result, here is what I have decoded.
Starting at the bottom of the picture with the medallion. The front side of the medal shows the Greek God Apollo in a nautical scene that looks very much like Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. Apollo is holding a laurel wreath and a quill pen. It reads in Latin OPTIME MERITIS , which translates to "EXCELLENT HUSBAND”. The Back side of the Medal shows the Blessed Virgin Mary sitting with the Goddess Pallas Athena. It reads in Latin DEO ET PATRIAE , which means "For God and Country".
Apollo, Athena and Bacon
According to Peter Dawkins in his book The Shakespeare Enigma, Apollo and Athena were God and Goddess of illumination and wisdom. He explains that Apollo carries the laurel wreath because it symbolizes the Master Poet. Apollo in the picture above has a Laurel wreath in one hand and a quill pen in his other hand. Apollo and Athena were the great muses that inspired all poets and artists. Dawkins explains that Sir Francis Bacon's double 'AA ' Head-piece that appears in his works and also in the works of Shakespeare stands for Apollo and Athena. Dawkins goes on to say that Francis Bacon was the leader of a secret Rosicrucian society called the Knights of the Helmet, which was dedicated to Apollo and Pallas Athena. Members of Bacon's group wore Athena's helmet because it represented invisibility. He explains that William Shakespeare was written by Sir Francis Bacon during this time period and the name William is derived from the Welsh name "Hwyll" that means god of light, the Greeks call him Apollo, "helm" which means helmet. The name Shake-speare is the reverse of Spear-Shake, Apollo and Athena were known as Spear Shakers. The name Pallas Athena literally means "Spear Shaker", because of this, the picture above is hinting to the name William Shakespeare. Apollo and Athena were known as the patrons of the seven liberal arts and sciences. On the floor next to the square and compass it shows all of the seven liberal arts and sciences.
The Double 'AA' Headpeice
William "The Silent" Prince of Orange has an important connection to the Rosicrucians. In the original Rosicrucian Manifesto called the Fama Fraternitatis, the story of the Rosicrucian founder Father C.R and his pilgrimage, from whom he learned the ancient esoteric knowledge. It is thought in occultism that C.R's pilgrimage seems to refer to transmutation steps of the Great Work in alchemy. The Fama listed its members with initials D, BF and R. Many believe that brother D is for John Dee because his personal mark called his Monas appears in the Rosicrucian Manifesto called The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz. Brother BF is Francis Bacon and Brother R is identifying Sir Walter Raleigh, because in the last page of the Fama, it ended with a large letter subscript: SUB UMBRA ALARUM TUARUM JEHOVAH, which translates to "UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE WINGS OF JEHOVAH"It points to an event in the summer of 1582 with which Raleigh was involved. A small group of Englishmen went to Antwerp to meet William the Silent of Orange, he was leader of the Protestant forces in the Netherlands. Queen Elizabeth herself rode out with them as far as Canterbury. The group was made up of Walter Raleigh, Lord Hunsdon, the Earl of Leicester, Fulke Greville, Philip Sidney, and Edward Dyer. When the Queen turned back the group continued on, crossed the channel, and proceeded to Antwerp where they met Prince William of Orange. Raleigh was detained there by William after the others had returned, and was entrusted with a special verbal message from the Queen: SUB UMBRA ALARUM TUARUM PROTEGIMUR That is, UNDER THE SHADOW OF YOUR WINGS WE ARE PROTECTED. On the portrait of Prince William it says "Protector". William was known as the "Protector of Liberties" in the Netherlands, he was sending both an appeal, and an acknowledgement, to Queen Elizabeth of her support of the Protestant cause. The Fama was a calling for Universal Reformation of Mankind and also opposed Roman Catholicism, and was similar to the Protestant movement of the Reformer Martin Luther. The 17th century was the time of the Rosicrucian Enlightenment, The Rosicrucian claimed to be a secret brotherhood of alchemist preparing to change the political and intellectual world along with the arts and sciences.William has his right hand hidden in his coat, if you look very close it shows that he's making the Freemason's secret Nova Scotia hidden hand gesture, he's pointing to the letter C with his right hand, and to the letter R with his left hand, the letters C and R stand for Rose Cross and Christian Rosenkreuz. The hidden hand gesture has been the hidden force behind world events of the past centuries, the bringing forth the Age of Enlightenment, the fall of European Monarchies and the plan of world democracy all started with Bacon's experiment on Oak Island. In 1688 during the Glorious Revolution, Prince William III of Orange became the King of England and Scotland when he defeated the Roman Catholic King James II of England and Scotland.Prince William is pointing downward showing us that the Goddess has a missing leg and foot.
Alchemy of Birth
Sir Francis Bacon is standing under a curtain on a small stage. The curtain is the missing leg and foot of the Goddess. She is the Divine Mother giving birth to Francis Bacon. She is the Athena, Virgin Mary and the Kabbalah Tree of Life, impregnated with God's light through the process of the alchemical marriage, She gives birth to a child, which is the fruit of that tree of life. The fruit she gives birth to may create harmony in the world.
Bacon's standing on a stage like an actor, because he is the author of the works of William Shakespeare, his initials F B are written behind his head. He's holding a book in his arms, which could be the lost Shakespeare manuscripts, because there is two hidden letter S's on the rim of the book. Many people over the years have theorized that manuscripts could be buried on Oak Island.
Francis Bacon is also on stage with a rabbit, phoenix and Angel wings, all of them are symbols known in alchemy.
In many alchemical stories a rabbit is shown leading a blindfolded alchemist to a rabbit hole for a revelation.
The Angel wings represent the alchemical transformation into the Heavens.
The Phoenix bird behind Francis Bacon is also a very important symbol of resurrection.
There are many birds in alchemy like the Black Crow, the White Swan and the Pelican, which are also hidden in this print.
The letters MN are on the right arm of the Virgin Mary and are the English Rosicrucian translation of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton meaning Jehovah.
The two sides of the medallion together makes the Vesica Pisces symbol, which is also the symbol of the Jesus fish. Vesica Pisces is one of the most sacred symbols in world, it's the story of the creation and in the kabalah it's the beginning manifestation of the Tree of Life and the flower of life. In Alchemy, the first circle is Male, the Father and the Sun. The second second circle is Female, the Mother and the Moon. The Vesica pisces is their Child or Son. It is another example of the alchemical Marriage and the Holy Grail.
The name FrAncIs BAcon is hidden in the Virgin Mary's clothing. The picture is showing birth of the "HEAD" of Francis Bacon, because he is the new Jesus Christ. The word ShAKE is on Athena's clothing and she's holding a Spear, giving the name Shake-spear. Athena is also giving birth to the "HEAD" of William Shakespeare,the Master Poet.
There is a Crow hidden in Francis Bacon's clothing. The Crow in alchemy represents death and is the first stage in alchemy called Nigredo and blackness. Many alchemists believed that as a first step in the pathway to the philosopher's stone
The Swan is hidden in Shakespeare's clothing, it symbolizes Life and is the second stage in alchemy called Albedo and whiteness.

As Above, so below
Hidden in the "Net" that's suspended at the top of the ceiling shows the shield of the Holland Society, also in the net it shows a Boar and a Swan. It is pertaining to a substance called the "Net" in alchemy. The Net was a term in alchemy for a copper-antimony alloy, named for its crystalline "net" like surface separated by interstices & thought to be one step in the creation of the Philosopher's Stone. Sir Isaac Newton was the president of The Royal Society of London and in his private notes, he wrote how he followed the steps to the creation of the Net and took to Starkey's theory of classical mythology where Venus and Mars are hung in a net from a high ceiling. Francis Bacon was known as the Boar and William Shakespeare was known as the Swan. Using the Boar and the Swan in the net is the same concept, the whole allegory fits admirably.
“‘Tis true without lying, certain and most true. That which is
below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below.” – Isaac Newton
Francis Bacon's initials are hidden in the cloth on top of the Globe.
In the picture below Simon Fooke drew Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. If you look very closely you can see Oak Island, Mahone Bay is positioned in a Northwestern direction exactly like it would on a modern map.
The right side of the globe shows the lower part of England, It's secretly showing that they were born in England and Rose on Oak Island.
