Halfcrown of Charles II

This is the second coin from a group sent in by Mark Drewitt. It is certainly an unusual find, for it is a milled coinage halfcrown of Charles II.

In my roughly 25 years of experience of detecting finds I’ve seen very few halfcrowns of Charles II. A high number went into circulation but few seem to have been lost; the reason for this might be that small coins were easier to lose than large ones.


This halfcrown is dated 1663, which is the first date to appear on a milled coinage halfcrown of Charles II. It has some wear to both sides so will have been in circulation for some time before it was lost. I’d grade it as about Fine and to a collector it should be worth £150.
