No 726 - Charles I Siege Coin 6D Image

Our reproduction is made from pewter plate, hand struck with a modern-day created die to represent this type.

During the English Civil War, the royalist forces of Charles I were besieged several times in different cities. This coin comes from the 3rd siege of Newark (November 26th 1645 to May 8th 1646). The “OBS:” on the reverse comes from the latin “obsidio” – siege or blockade. These coins (halfcrowns, shillings, ninepennies and sixpences) were cut from donated silver plate.

Our coin is a sixpence denoted by the VI on the reverse.
