1703 Queen Anne Silver Crown VIGO

1703 Queen Anne Silver Crown VIGO Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£995.00
A collectable silver Crown of Queen Anne, dated 1703. The obverse features the first draped bust of the queen facing left, with the word ‘VIGO’ below indicating that the silver used to strike these coins was captured from Spanish treasure fleet at the Battle of Vigo Bay in 1702. These coins celebrate an overwhelming success for the Grand Alliance in the early years of the War of the Spanish Succession. The reverse shows crowned cruciform shields around a central garter star, nothing in the angles. The edge has raised lettering in Latin for the regnal year ‘TERTIO’. On this example the ‘R’ in ‘TERTIO’ overstruck in a scarce variation. An interesting piece which represents a fascinating chapter in British naval history. Spink 3576.
