Charles I acceded to the throne in 1625 following the death of his father, James I. In March 1629, around the time this coin was struck, Charles dissolved the English parliament, beginning 11 years of personal rule, only broken by the need to pay troops to face an invading Scottish army in 1640.

What are gold Crown coins?

The first gold Crown coins were struck during the reign of King Henry VIII. These hammered Five Shilling pieces were minted in both silver and gold through the rest of the Tudor period and into the reign of King Charles II. Silver Crowns continued to be struck for circulation in the ensuing centuries through in fairly limited numbers. In recent decades the Crown has found a role as a commemorative coin, with a face value of Five Pounds. Limited numbers of these modern Crowns are struck in gold as a prestigious collectors piece.
