Half crown of Charles II

This is the latest find to come in from Steve Bartlett, who has discovered a productive site in Cumbria. Rather than being hammered silver, this is a milled coinage halfcrown.

The coin was struck during the reign of Charles II and is dated 1671 on the reverse. It must have been in circulation for a number of years for it is rather worn, especially on the obverse


The date isn’t scarce but halfcrowns of Charles II are very rare as detecting finds. Even in its present condition, only about Fair, it could still be worth around £25 to a keen collector.
