Penny of Elizabeth I

The coin featured here is the first from a group of three sent in by Robin Dones. It’s a silver penny of Elizabeth I, on which Robin asked for a valuation

The coin has beaded inner circles and mint mark cross crosslet on both sides, so it is number 2558 in the Standard Catalogue..

Valuation

This coin hasn’t as much circulation wear as I’ve seen on some coins of Elizabeth I but it has a crease mark running across the obverse in front of the queen’s face. It looks as if it was bent and then straightened, leaving it rather unstable. The coin would grade Fine but the crease would reduce its value to £15 – £18 at best.
