Elizabeth I sixpence

This is the first find from a group that came in from Derek Henderson. It’s an Elizabeth I sixpence, which is the denomination found most frequently by detectorists. I can’t provide a figure but the total will now run into many thousands.

Derek’s coin is dated 1573 on the reverse and the mint mark on both sides is an acorn. It was struck during the third issue and fourth issues, which commenced in 1561 and ended in 1577.   


The obverse is only Fair but the reverse is better and about Fine. Besides being rather worn, this coin has been pierced and this shows up most clearly to the right of the mint mark on the reverse. With the wear and the piercing this coin would be worth £10 at best.
