Buy a 1461-1464 Edward IV Hammered Gold Quarter Ryal Lis Mintmark

A rare high grade Quarter Ryal of king Edward the Fourth with a Lis mint mark to both sides, indicating that this piece was struck between 1461 and 1464 at the Tower mint in London. These are the early years of Edward’s first reign which lasted until a revolt in 1470 briefly reinstated Henry VI as king. Edward IV returned to the throne in 1471. The obverse of this gold coin shows a central shield of royal arms with an E above, a rose to the left, a sun to the right and a lis below, all within a trefoil which is itself enclosed in a beaded circle. The reverse shows a central rose from which emanates a sunburst motif, shining over a decorative cross with lions in the angles. This is enclosed within a tressure and beaded circle. The surrounding legend, translated, reads ‘He shall be exalted in glory’. This superb example of a scarce issue of Edward IV would make an excellent addition to any serious collection. Spink 1965, North 1560, Schneider 409.
