This coin was recently unearthed in Devon by James Amato, who wanted a valuation in order to give half to the owner of the land in which it was found. A detecting colleague, Peter Vernon took the photographs for James.
The coin is a shilling of Elizabeth I with mint mark martlet on both sides, so it was struck during the second issue (1560-61). It’s not a rare coin but shillings turn up much less frequently than the smaller denominations of Elizabeth I.
This shilling would grade Fine to good Fine but it has faint scratches within the inner circle on the obverse. In its present condition the price to a collector would be £80 to £90.
