Groat of Henry VI

This coin was sent in by Peter Vernon of behalf of a detecting colleague named Keith, who wanted to gain some idea of its value.

The coin is a groat of Henry VI, which was struck during the first reign of this king. On both sides some of the punctuation marks are rosettes and mascles, so the coin was struck during the rosette mascle coinage (1430-31). The inner legend on the reverse tells us that this groat was struck at Calais, which is situated on the coast of France.   


The coin is on a full flan, which looks to be slightly discoloured. I’d grade the coin as about VF so to a keen collector of hammered silver coins it should be worth up to £120.
