1708 Anne Silver Halfcrown Septimo

1708 Anne Silver Halfcrown Septimo Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

from
£650.00
A collectable silver Halfcrown of Queen Anne, dated 1708 from the period after the Acts of Union. The obverse shows the second draped bust of the queen, facing left. The reverse shows crowned cruciforms shields of arms with the combined arms of England and Scotland in two shields with the arms of France and Ireland in the others. The angles between the shields are plain. The combined Scottish and English arms to the reverse were introduced when the Treaty of Union came into effect in May 1707, uniting the legislatures of the two nations. Though the states had been ruled by the same monarch since 1603, they had retained separate parliaments which were united in the Parliament of Great Britain. This coin has the regnal year ‘SEPTIMO’ (‘seventh’) in raised lettering to the edge. Graded Extremely Fine, this coin would be an excellent addition to any collection. Spink 3604.
