Buy a 1464-1470 Edward IV Gold Rose Noble Ryal MM Crown

Hammered gold Ryal, Royal or Rose Noble from the first reign of Edward IV. The Yorkist Edward seized the throne in 1461 after deposing Henry VI and ruled until a Lancastrian revolt forced him into exile in Flanders in 1470. By the spring of 1471 he had gathered enough support to retake the crown. Edward’s first gold Nobles maintained the specifications and value of those minted during the reigns of his predecessors. In an attempt to combat the export of English gold to the continent, Edward new gold coin - the Rose Noble - with a value of ten Shillings in 1464. At the same time the Noble was valued at eight Shillings and four Pence. The new Ryal was not popular and was not stuck after 1470. This example, shows the crowned figure of the king in a ship at sea, clutching a shield showing the quartered royal arms in his left hand and a sword in the other. His ship bears a rose on its side and flies a flag emblazoned with the letter ‘E’ which beaks the beaded border that encloses the design. The reverse has a rose at the centre over a sunburst/cross motif with lis terminals and crowns over lions in the angles. This is enclosed within a tressure of eight arcs with trefoils in the spandrels, itself within a beaded circle. A clear crown mint mark appears in the legend. Spink 1950, North 1549, Schneider 358.
