Groat of Henry VI

This is the second groat of Henry VI found by Robin Dones, in the same field as another coin of the same reign and denomination.

The coin was struck at London during the annulet coinage of Henry VI. On the reverse there is an annulet in two of the quarters containing three pellets.

London groats of the annulet coinage aren’t particularly scarce but they turn no less frequently than those struck at Calais.

The coin is weak in places but struck on a round flan and still good enough to grade Fine. As two very similar coins were unearthed from the same field then if they were found reasonably close together they would count as a Treasure find. Therefore, Robin said he would be reporting these two coins as a possible Treasure find.
