Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A silver group A penny of Charles I, (1625-1649). Reverse: IVS THRONVM FIRMAT; crowned rose. Pierced through the centre of the rose from the obverse through to the reverse. North no. 2262.

Notes:

The silver coin has been pierced, indicating a secondary function which 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.
