A collectable hammered silver Shilling of King Charles the First. The star mint mark to both sides indicates that this coin was struck in the year 1640 or 1641 in London before Parliament seized control of the Tower mint. The obverse features the sixth ‘Briot’s’ bust, type 4.4, facing left. The Roman numerals ‘XII’ behind Charles I’s head indicate the coins value: twelve pence or one Shilling. The reverse shows an ornate, garnished oval shield of royal arms. Charles was facing bankruptcy in 1640 and seized silver bullion from the Tower mint worth £130,000. This coin is relatively common in lower grades but hard to find with a reverse as good as this one.
