Groat of Edward IV

This hammered silver coin is a recent find that came in from Colin Barton, who asked for a full ID and a valuation.

The coin is a groat of Edward IV, which was struck during the light coinage of the first reign of this king. It has quatrefoils by the neck of King Edward, an extra pellet in one quarter of the reverse and mint mark rose on both sides. In the Standard Catalogue groats of this type are listed as number 2000.    


The obverse of Colin’s find would grade good Fine. On the reverse the surface looks rather curious, as if it has been in very abrasive soil for a few hundred years. On the plus side, the flan is well spread and larger than usual. In its present condition I’d price this groat at £60 to £80.
