This week we already have a very nice Elizabeth I sixpence on the website, now here’s an attractive threepence piece of Elizabeth I. It was unearthed by Martin Depear on Sunday 5 March and I was asked to give a full ID and a valuation.
The coin is dated 1561 above the shield on the reverse and it has mint mark pheon on both sides. This isn’t a scarce date but the condition of this coin is well above average. It is well struck; the obverse would grade about VF but the reverse isn’t quite as good.
A collector in need of an Elizabeth I threepence with good eye appeal should be willing to pay at least £120 for this specimen.
