COIN HOARD

Unique ID: WILT-4D0D76

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A dispersed civil war hoard of 21 silver coins. The hoard consisted of 7 halfcrowns and 14 shillings. The earliest coin was a shilling of Philip and Mary. The latest a shilling of Charles I with the initial mark (R), minted in 1644-5 suggesting that the hoard was deposited in or after 1646. None of the coins was in good condition and most of the coins of Charles I showed evidence of clipping. This appears to be a currency deposit hidden at a time of crisis and not recovered. The coins are summarised below, the weights are given in the attached appendix

Philip and Mary shilling 1

Elizabeth I shillings 3

James I shillings 3

Charles I halfcrowns 7

Charles I shillings 7
