Henry VIII halfgroat

Andy Thelwell is the finder of this hammered silver coin. I was asked if I could give Andy a rough estimate of its value.

The coin is a Henry VIII halfgroat, which was issued during the second coinage. The coin was struck at Canterbury for the profit of the archbishop, who at the time was William Warham. Either side of the shield on the reverse is a letter: W to the left and A to the right, which stand for William and Archbishop. On the obverse the mint mark is a cross patonce and on the reverse it is a letter T.


The legend on both sides is a bit weak in places but the centres are VF. The combination of mint marks would add interest to some collectors so I would price the coin at £160.
