A small coin hoard of six coins, of Late Post Medieval dating (AD 1680s onwards). Five of the coins are from the issues of Charles II, four guineas, which will be of the 22 carat 'crown gold' standard and one shilling, which will be of the sterling standard, over 90% fine metal. These coins would have been in currency together in the later 17th or early 18th century and the absence of any coins of the later Stuarts or early Hanoverians makes it seem unlikely that it is a group from much later than around 1690. The most recent coin of this group is, a little oddly, the most worn …
