This coin was recently unearthed by Stewart Beech and I was asked to give him some idea of what it might be worth.
Stewart’s find is a hammered coinage sixpence of Elizabeth I. The coin has mint mark pheon on both sides and is dated 1564 above the shield on the reverse. This date isn’t particularly scarce but nor is it as common as many others on sixpences of Elizabeth I.
The obverse has been struck off centre and displays lots of faint scratches, which is a pity but this side is otherwise in Fine condition. The reverse is centrally struck and this side would also grade Fine. In its present state of preservation, I’d give the coin a price range of £35 – £45.
