No 769 - Commonwealth Shilling 1650

No 769 - Commonwealth Shilling 1650 Image

Made from a modern die cut by a master craftsman to represent this type and hand struck from pewter.

During the Commonwealth a standard design was used on all coins, consisting of an obverse showing the shield of St George within a wreath and the legend THE COMMONWEALTH OF ENGLAND and reverse with date, value mark and legend GOD WITH VS with two shields, that of St George and that of Ireland (the smaller denominations, two pence, penny and halfpenny omitted the date and legends). The conjoined shields on the reverse led to these coins being called "Breeches money".

Our example is dated 1650 amd is a fantastic reproduction of this type.
