Previous Weeks’ Listings (scroll down this page for “This Week’s Listings”):
WI-6484: 1689 Irish Gun Money Halfcrown - February. Struck during the Civil War, the idea being to redeem these Gun Money pieces for actual currency once the dust had settled. £115
WI-6485: 1691 Irish Limerick
Besieged Halfpenny. Single year issue. Struck over a large Gun Money shilling whilst James was besieged at
WJC-6482: Charles 1st Hammered Silver Late Civil War Half Crown. Tower mint under Parliament, i.m. sun, 1645-46. Group III (3a3). Spink 2778. Toned and about as struck. £185
WCom-6483: 1651 Commonwealth Hammered Silver Sixpence – Rarer Variety. Full of flan with a very clear date. No stops after COMMONWEALTH indicating this is an earlier, 1650 obverse. Spink 3219 var. Ex Spink (see here). The 1650 obverse was problematic so effort was put into the 51 obverse in terms of improvements. This is a rare die combination. £595
WMH-6481: Empress Matilda (Rightful
Norman Heir of Henry 1st) Cardiff Hammered Silver Penny. Cross patonce over
cross fleuree in saltire. Struck 1139-48.
WMH-6476: William 1st
Hammered Norman Penny.
WSC-6479: Robert “The Bruce” 1st Medieval Scottish Hammered Silver Penny. Bust of Robert Bruce left, reverse four mullets of five points each. Coinage was only struck very late in this reign. Spink 5076. Once of the rarest, most iconic Scottish coins you can get and also very rare. This one much better than normally seen (although ‘normally’ is the wrong word when you bear in mind I’ve only seen three of four ever) and equally on a par with one that was doing the rounds at the UK coin fairs which had an asking price of over £2,000 and recently sold. This coin accompanied by an old auction printout. £1,250

WCA-6487: Charles II Hammered Silver Restoration Sixpence. Third issue, initial mark crown. Spink 3323. This is immediately prior to the introduction of the new milled coinage of 1662. The third issue is notoriously poor, presumably because the writing was on the wall for hammered coinage therefore little effort went into both the dies and the end product. This coin is exceptional for the issue. £595
WMH-6488: Edward 1st
Hammered Silver Penny. BERWICK
WJC-6489: 1606 James 1st Hammered Silver Sixpence. Second coinage, third bust, im escallop. Better date, very nice grade. £145
WJC-6490: James 1st Hammered Silver Halfpenny. Third coinage with no initial mark. Spink 2673. Very nice grade. £69
WSC-6491: Scottish James VI Hammered Billon Silver Eight Penny Groat. Struck before James’ accession to the English throne. Spink 5513. Very good grade indeed for issue and the rarer type. £149
