Robert's Notes: Considering its age, this has a stunning Thistle and Rose. It is virtually uncirculated, and was lost not long after it was minted. This coin was minted three years into the translation and writing of the King James Version of the Bible. Shakespeare was 43 years old.
Due to "clipping," master of the Royal Mint, Sir. Issac Newton, ordered hand-hammered coins like this one to be recalled, melted, and re-minted using a new screw press that put edges on the coins, similar to the edges on the coins in your pocket. Had this coin not been lost before 1696, we would not be able to enjoy it now.
Of Special Note: This coin comes from a collection 25 years in the making by a metal detector friend of ours in England named Mike. For a quarter century, he has hunted the land around York and other areas for lost treasures. Countless thousands of hours have gone into bring this coin to you.
One of our favorite shows is "Detectorists" on Netflix and Amazon. Mike's wife said before he could buy the latest, greatest metal detector, he must sell some of his collection.
