A collectable date hammered silver Sixpence of Elizabeth the First from her third/fourth coin issue. Dated 1569 with Crown/Coronet mint mark. The obverse features the intermediate bust type 4B, facing left, with the Queen’s ear clearly exposed. A Tudor rose appears to the right of the bust, inside a beaded circle. The reverse shows a shield of arms, quartered by a fourchee cross. The date appears above. In 1569 Elizabeth was faced with a major Catholic rising in the north which aimed at freeing Mary Queen of Scots – then imprisoned in England – though forces had mostly dispersed and retreated by the end of the year.
