1551 Edward VI Hammered Silver Shilling MM Y Southwark

1551 Edward VI Hammered Silver Shilling MM Y Southwark Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A collectible hammered silver Shilling of king Edward the Sixth. The ‘Y’ mint mark seen on the obverse indicates that this coin was struck in Southwark in 1551. This is an example of Edward VI’s fine silver issue which bears a more mature facing portrait than his earlier, seriously debased coinage. Several varieties of this bust are known. A rose is shown to his left and ‘XII’ for 12 pence to his right. The reverse shows a long cross quartering a flat-topped shield of royal arms. Edward’s fine silver issue – the finest ever issued under the Tudors - would be the last of his short reign before his death in 1553. Spink 2482, North 1937.
