Elizabeth I Milled Silver Sixpence, 1562, Star Mint Mark

 

S2596 broad bust and decorated dress.

26mm, 3g

The first attempt at milled coinage was during the Tudor period, a numismatic milestone.

AVF

 

£135

Elizabeth I, Silver Shilling, Escallop, 1584-6

 

Although this has a weak strike or portrait is worn, the legend is unusual as it reads ELIZB instead of ELIZAB! 

The reverse is better. Overall, a well centred and nicely shaped coin.

31mm, 5.6g

 

 £60

Elizabeth I, Shilling, Escallop, 1584-6

 

Here the legend is the usual ELIZAB. Scratches to obverse, nice reverse.

Good reverse and well-centred coin.

 

31mm, 5.53g

 

  £65

Elizabeth I, Shilling, Martlet, 1560-61

 

Here we have the normal legend of ELIZABETH and second issue, martlet mint mark. Rather scratched (? contemporary vandalism) but still a lovely coin.

Reverse

 

31mm, 6g

 

  £55
