1606-1607 James I Hammered Silver Shilling Tower Mint MM Escallop

1606-1607 James I Hammered Silver Shilling Tower Mint MM Escallop Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A hammered silver Shilling of king James the First with an Escallop mint mark. This tells us that it was struck at the Tower mint of London in 1606 or 1607. From James’ second coinage issue (1604 to 1619), the obverse features the fourth type crowned bust, facing right, identified by plainer armour and a double arched crown. The reverse shows a large shield of royal arms within a beaded circle. James I’s accession to the English throne in 1603 brought about the union of the English and Scottish crowns, reflected in his arms and the reverse legend. Translated, this reads ‘What God has joined together let no man put asunder’. Spink 2655, North 2100.
