Please Note: This is an authentic Elizabeth I Silver Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.
SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW FOR PENDANT SIZE
Elizabeth I, the legendary daughter of Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, succeeded to the throne following the death of her half sister, Mary. From her first days on the throne, Elizabeth combined her scholar’s mind and a deft instinct for politics to rule and grow her powerful kingdom. Her reign has been described as “the most colorful and splendid in English history.” Under her leadership the British Empire was founded, the power of Spain challenged on the seas and was finally broken by the defeat of the Armada, the Renaissance and the work of Shakespeare flowered, and the transition from the medieval twilight to a more progressive, modern age began.
The Obverse of the Elizabethan sixpence bears the bust of the queen, with a Tudor Rose behind her head. The beaded inner circle is circumferenced by the proud inscription: ELIZABETH D G AND FRA ET HIB REGINA: Elizabeth by the Grace of God, Queen of England, France and Ireland. The Reverse is quartered by the Long Cross which sits over the Royal Shield with Arms displaying the Passant Lions and Fleurs-de-lis. The inscription reads: POSUI DEUM ADIVITOREM MEUM: I have made God my helper.
Robert's Notes: Beautiful, clear portrait of Elizabeth and Tudor Rose behind her head, and a stunning shield and date. You can see ELIZABETH behind her portrait. Shakespeare was 9 years old when this coin was struck.
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.
This coin is part of our friend Mike's collection. He has been metal detecting in England for over 25 years. He sold us these, so his wife would let him buy the latest metal detector.
