Henry VI groat

This very recent find came in from Steven Simmons very soon after it was unearthed. Send in finds to a magazine and it could take months before you see then. Send finds in to this website and you’ll see them in a few days.

Steven’s find is a Calais mint groat of Henry VI. It was struck during the pinecone mascle coinage, so it dates between 1430 and 1434.

The coin weighs 3.6 grams, so it is slightly underweight for a groat. It might be clipped but not all groats of Henry VI are the full weight.

Valuation

The obverse would grade good Fine, the reverse about VF. Being somewhat short of flan this does detract from its overall appearance. In terms of its market value, in its present condition I would price it at £90.
