1513-1518 Henry VIII Hammered Silver Groat Tournai MM Crowned T Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£1,950.00
A very scarce hammered Groat of king Henry the eighth, its attractive crowned T, indicating that this silver coin was struck at the mint of Tournai in modern Belgium between 1513 and 1518. In these years, Henry VIII was engaged in a war with France, leading his armies personally. He captured Tournai in 1513 and began minting Groats and Halfgroats with captured French silver in the city of which few survive. The obverse, like the rest of Henry’s early silver coinage features a beak-nosed portrait of his father, Henry VII, surrounded by a legend that proclaims the son ‘king of France and England’, rather than the more typical ‘England and France’. The reverse shows the royal arms, quartered by a long cross. The legend reads: ‘CIVITAS TORNACENS’. Even with the crease and minor edge damage this is scarce and important piece, suitable for any serious collection. Spink 2317.
