1526-1544 Henry VIII Hammered Silver Groat Wolsey York

1526-1544 Henry VIII Hammered Silver Groat Wolsey York Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A scarce and collectable hammered silver Groat of king Henry the Eighth’s second coinage (1526-1544) with a voided cross mint mark to both sides. This indicates that this coin was struck at the mint of York under the control of Cardinal Thomas Wolsey: English statesman and Archbishop of York until his death in 1530. The obverse features Laker bust type D, facing right within a beaded circle. On the reverse a long cross quarters a shield of royal arms. The letters ’T’ and ‘W’ sit either side of the shield and a cardinal’s hat appear below. Shakespeare himself criticises Wolsey for adding putting his mark on coinage in his Henry VIII but it does make this issue particularly interesting. Spink 2339.
