1649-1660 Commonwealth Hammered Silver Halfgroat Coin

1649-1660 Commonwealth Hammered Silver Halfgroat Coin Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

Hammered silver Commonwealth Halfgroat. Obverse: shield with the cross of St George, surrounded by branches of laurel and palm, representing the peace brought by Civil War. Beaded border. Reverse: conjoined shields of arms, cross of St George to the left for England and the Irish harp to the right. '·II·' above for the value: Two Pence. Design enclosed within a beaded border, no legends. The same design was utilised on Halfgroats issued from 1649 to 1660. Like most of the money issued after the death of King Charles I, these coins bear no portrait with the cross of St George and the Irish harp replacing the royal arms. Larger coinage from this period features legends in English rather than Latin. This example weighs 0.98 grams and has a diameter of 17.9 millimetres. Grade: AVF - Full flan and plenty fine detailing on St George cross: About Very Fine. References: S 3221, ESC 224.
