Coronet mint mark and legend that reads: ‘POSVI | DEV . AD | IVTORE | M . MEV .’’. In this year, Elizabeth faced a rising led by three northern earls who sought to depose her and place the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots on the English throne. Mary had abdicated the Scottish throne in 1567 and had fled south of the border. Though the rebellion dissipated, vicious retribution was sought in Yorkshire through hundreds of hangings, despite little evidence of popular support. Elizabeth would eventually try her cousin for treason and order her execution in 1587. This silver coin weighs 3.22 grams and has a diameter of 25.60. Grade: GF - Attractive medium tone, usual nicks and scratches, reasonable bust details and bold legends for a grade of Good Fine. S 2562.
