Elizabeth I sixpence

This is the first of a couple of very recent finds that came in from Stephen Palmer. It’s an Elizabeth I hammered coinage sixpence.

 The coin is dated 1567 on the reverse and has mint mark crown on both sides. This is one of the most common dates for Elizabeth I sixpences, the others being 1568 and 1569.

Valuation

The coin would grade only Fair and it has a crease mark, which shows up mostly on the obverse. It’s not long since that a sixpence in this condition would sell for well under £10 but today it could fetch £15 – £18.
