Penny of Charles I

The hammered silver coin pictured here measures only 13mm in diameter but is shown greatly enlarged. It was found by Kate Trotman de Roux on 28 November and I was asked to provide a valuation.

The coin is a penny of Charles I, which was struck at the mint situated in the Tower of London. It belongs to Group D and has the fourth bust of King Charles on the obverse. The coin has no inner circles and it has pellets as the mint mark on both sides.


In the edge there are two very small chips and it is slightly weak in places but overall it would grade about VF, so it is in better condition than most other pennies of this period that I have seen as detecting finds. In terms of its possible value, I’d say around £40.
