Groat of Henry VIII

This coin is number three from a group of four that came in from Marcin Koper. It’s a groat of Henry VIII, which has on the obverse a profile portrait of the king.

Groats of this type were issued during the second coinage (1526-44) of Henry VIII. A number of different marks were used and they were occasionally muled. This groat has mint mark arrow on both sides, which doesn’t help with dating as it was used during the whole of the second coinage.


The reverse on Marcin’s find would grade about VF. Within the inner circle on the obverse there are faint scratches and the king’s face is very weak. The condition of the obverse is a significant minus point so my price range would be no higher than £70 to £90.
