Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A silver threepence dating to the reign of Elizabeth I (1558 - 1603).

Obverse:

Crowned left facing bust with rose.

The mint mark is worn, however it is possibly '65b' Acorn (1573-74) (Mitchell & Reeds 1997, 171).

The inscription is worn and incomplete however likely would have read: ELIZABETH/DG/ANG/FR/ET/HI/REGINA.

Reverse:

A long cross fourchee over a shield displaying a royal coat of arms.

The date of the coin is incomplete: 15??

The inscription is worn and incomplete, however would have likely read: POSVI/DEV AD/IVTORE/M MEV (I have made God my Helper).

Discussion:

The rose to the right of the bust was used to distinguish the sixpence, threepence, three halfpence and threefarthings from the shilling, groat, half groat and penny (Mitchell & Reeds 1997, 171).
