Halfcrown of Charles I

Mike Ruczynski said this coin was unearthed a number of years since. It’s a larger than usual hammered silver coin in the shape of a halfcrown of Charles I.

This halfcrown was struck at the mint in the Tower of London and it is type 4 of Group four. The mint mark is triangle in circle, which dates the coin to 1641-43 (the early years of the Firs Civil War). In the Standard Catalogue this type is listed as number 2779.


Mike’s find would grade Fine for the issue but it has a large gouge across the obverse and the reverse is off centre. The overall condition could be better but even in its present condition this halfcrown could still be worth around £40.
