Postgraduate student Joseph Hone found a manuscript which revealed the scientist had designed the medal for Queen Anne's coronation in 1702.
It explained the design as symbolising the dual threats of France and rival Stuart claimants to the throne.
Mr Hone, an English DPhil student on a Oxford and Exeter university project, says the discovery casts more light on Newton's professional career and how his work moved between science, maths and humanities.
The Inaugural Lecture of the Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon was delivered by Professor Andy Orchard on 25 February in the English Faculty. The lecture was entitled 'The Craft and Cunning of Anglo-Saxon Verse' and the Podcast can be listened to here.
