Buy a 1689-1694 Mary II Undated Moon Pattern Farthing

A rare and collectable silver pattern Farthing or medalet of Mary II, undated. The obverse features the undraped bust of Queen Mary facing right with the reverse showing a moon with a face in clouds above the sea. The legend around reads ‘EX NOCTE DIEM’, which translates as ‘The day from the night’. Mary’s father, James II’s Catholicism caused divisions that led to his deposition in the Glorious Revolution of 1688. Mary’s ascension with her husband, William III, marked a return to Anglicanism, which is, presumably, the ‘light’ in this context. A fascinating piece of numismatic history with an unusual design. Comes with an old Farthing Specialist envelope.
