WAu-6102: Elizabeth 1st Hammered Gold Half Angel. Initial mark Latin Cross, fifth issue, 1580 – 1581. All Elizabeth 1st gold coinage is rare but you see many more full angels compared to halves.

Ex Seaby (1953) and sold with two of their tickets and one later ticket. Rare. £2,995
WAu-5766: Henry VIII Hammered Gold Angel. First coinage (1509-26), i.m. Castle. Lovely toning and in very nice grade. A most attractive gold coin from the reign of Henry VIII. £2,395
WMH-6427: Edward I Medieval Hammered Silver GROAT. Struck very early on during the New Coinage which commenced 1279. Bust with larger oval face with bushy hair, thick curved drapery with rosette in centre, quatrefoil in three lines surrounding bust, flowers in spandrels, obv. triple pellet stops, mm. cross pattée, rev. with pellet barred N and colon stops :DNS HIBN' EDVX AQVT', 4.99g, (S.1379E, N.1006, Fox 4). Never gilt or mounted , slight edge chip and only about fair but very rare. Ruding says that during the reign of Edward I, William de Turnmire, of Marseilles was appointed to the office of Master of the Mint in England, under an agreement dated Thursday the Feast of the Conception of the Blessed Mary, in the eighth year of Edward's reign (i.e. 8 December 1279). Amongst other things it was agreed that Master William should make great Sterling ('grossus sterlingus') to the value of four lesser sterling. This new denomination proved unpopular with an almost complete recall sometime after the date of the class 3g coinage. Ex Beauchamp Coins, ex AMR, ex Yorkshire collection. Sold with these tickets. An excessively rare coin (Jon Mann, the acclaimed numismatic researcher, ex of Spink, stated on his ticket that there were only 59 recorded groats for Edward 1st by Dr Martin Allen) with the bulk being either gilt or mounted or both. This coin is neither…and neither does it come with the usual £10,000 price tag! £2,850
…and receive the Queen Anne Gold touchpiece ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!
WAu-6020: Queen Anne Gold Touch Piece. Guaranteed to have been touched by Queen Anne herself at an official Touching Ceremony to “cure” Scrofula (modern day Tubercularosis). Sufferers of the disease were invited to attend by strict invitation only. A pass was given which allowed entry although no Queen Anne passes have been recorded, leading to the assumption that either they were handwritten paper passes or the old Charles II passes were re-used. The Queen personally gave every sufferer one of these gold touchpieces. The theory was that the Queen touched the gold touchpiece and then personally gave it to the sufferer, so through her God also touched the sufferer. Queen Anne is recorded as being the most reluctant Toucher out of all the monarchs, getting out of what she could. The touchpieces were purposefully pierced, always in the same position, in order that sufferers could wear them around their necks, next to their skin. The vast majority of these would have been melted down and the money spent on everyday living, if not by the sufferer, then surely his or her descendants. Recipients were not always commoners. Queen Anne touched Dr Johnson (of the Dictionary fame) when he was 2 ½ on 30 March 1712. His touchpiece, identical to this one, currently resides in the British Museum. Dr Johnson’s touchpiece, like this one, also shows little or no sign of wear. Unlike previous monarchs who physically touched the sufferers’ open sores and wounds, Queen Anne refused to do this, instead opting for a loadstone to do the touching. She certainly touched the gold touchpieces though. 27th April 1714, three months before Anne died, was the last ever Touching Ceremony performed on British soil. In total, the practice had been in existence for 50 years. The Hanoverians (George 1st etc) would have none of it. This is a high grade example with a provenance going back to 1968 (x2 tickets and a printout). Touchpieces issued by Anne are much rarer than those issued by other English monarchs. This is the first I’ve owned and I don’t think I’ve even seen another outside of books and the BM. £2,275
