A complete, worn and pierced post-Medieval silver halfgroat of Charles I (1625-1649). Group B to Group G, initial marks: illegible, c. 1630-c. 1649 (North 1991, 161-162, refs: 2250-2260). Inner circle on both sides. The reverse inscription does not seem to be at its usual orientation. The coin has been pierced with a square hole, c. 1.1 x 1.1mm at about 9 o’ clock on the obverse. It seems to have been modified as a ‘love-token’ as it is slightly S-shaped.

Obverse: [CA]ROLVS D G M B F E[T HI REX]; [Crowned bust left] with II (mark of value) behind the head.

Reverse: [IVSTITIA THRONV]MĀ·FIRMAT (Justice strengthens the throne); Oval garnished shield.

Diameter: 16.5mm. Weight: 0.86g.

North, J.J. 1991. English Hammered Coinage, Volume II, Edward I to Charles II, 1272-1662. Spink & Son, London.

Notes:

The perforation of a precious metal coin would normally indicate that it should be considered as potential Treasure. However, since coins of this period with similar piercings appear in hoards of currency, it suggests that such objects could re-enter circulation as coins. It therefore cannot be said with confidence whether this particular object was regarded as a coin or as an item of jewellery at the time that the coin was deposited. This coin does not, therefore, constitute potential Treasure under the terms of the Treasure Act 1996.

Evidence of reuse: The coin has been pierced at about 9 o’ clock on the obverse and may have been modified as a ‘love-token’
