1607-1609 James I Hammered Silver Halfgroat MM Coronet

1607-1609 James I Hammered Silver Halfgroat MM Coronet Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

An interesting hammered silver Halfgroat of King James the First. From the second coinage issue of his reign, struck in the period 1604 to 1619. This example has a Coronet mint mark, indicating that it was minted between the years 1607 and 1609 at the Tower mint in London. The coin features a crowned rose to the obverse. The legend should read ‘I D G ROSA SINE SPINA’ per North but this Halfgroat seems to read ‘SPINE’ instead. The reverse shows a thistle: the two national emblems speaking to the union of the crowns that occurred when James VI of Scotland became James I of England in 1603. James also issued a very similar coin with a Thistle mint marks and a value of Two Shillings in Scotland. This coin comes with an old B A Seaby ticket/envelope from Jan 1965 listing a price 27/6. Spink 2659, North 2104.
