Worn and pierced silver Post Medieval halfgroat of Charles II. With the piercing above the bust on the obverse it may have been used for suspension. However, the Maundy ceremony was introduced in 1662 by Charles II in which, amongst other coins, twopences were issued, hence the coin could also be a Maundy piece. Such touch-pieces were believed to ward off scrofula, a disease also known as the Kings evil. Circa AD1660-1663. Diameter: 21.0mm. Weight: 0.89g.

Post medieval silver milled penny of Charles II dating to AD 1683. London mint. See: Spink, p.325, no.3390. Square perforation behind bust, indicating a secondary function. This 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. This coin does …
