Crowns

 

WTH-5955:  1551 Edward VI Hammered Silver Full Crown.  Fine silver issue, i.m. y is 1551 only.  Southwark.  The first English coin dated in the way we recognise (ie not Roman numerals).  A large, problem-free Tudor silver coin.  £2,195

Shillings

 

WTH-6418:  1549 Edward VI Hammered Silver Shilling.  Tower 1, bust 5, initial mark Arrow (tentative Arrow over Grapple on obverse).  Spink 2466.  Ex Lord Stewartby collection, ex Potter collection.  The coin offered here was sold in the recent Spink “Lord Stewartby V” sale (lot 1701).  I bought this single coin from a collector.  It looks very much like that collector mixed the coin envelopes up.  See here.  In effect, this coin envelope is useless with this coin, although it does allow us to work out the Lord Stewartby V sale connection.  Thanks to Rich Mooney for doing the detective work on this one.  Very good grade for issue – I disagree with Spink who rate this coin inferior in grade to the Blunt coin (i).  There are much sharper areas on this coin but coupled with weak strike areas.  £389

 

WTH-6037:  1550 Edward VI Hammered Silver Shilling.  Tower mint (it was only in last few months of 1551 when the sterling standard was restored and Southwark closed down that under treasurer John York moved from that mint to the Tower mint and brought the Y mm with him for the new issue), bust 5, initial mark Y.  Dated 1550 which is a rarer year than the usual 1549.  Spink 2466.  Very good grade for issue.  £259

 

WTH-6338:  1550 Edward VI Hammered Silver Shilling.  Tower mint, bust 4, initial mark Swan.  Dated 1550 which is a rarer year than the usual 1549.  Spink 2466 (£900 2016).  High grade for issue with silver content looking very much like that of the Fine Silver issue of 1551.  £389
