Description

Elizabeth I (1558-1603), first issue, angel, mintmark lis (1559-60), wire-line inner circles both sides, Saint Michael slaying the dragon, legend surrounds ELIZABETH D G ANG FRAN Z HIB REGI. Rev, ship facing right, bearing quartered shield of arms, cross above, E and rose either side, reads A DNO FACTVM EST ISTVD Z EST MIRABILE, pellet stops, 5.10gms. (S.2513; N.1979; Schneider 731; Brown & Comber C1).

Marginally uneven flan in the western region of coin, otherwise very fine to good very fine in places, very rare. It has been noted that collars were not used for some of the first issue Sovereigns leaving some examples with ragged flans, this may be the case with the earlier Angels also. A handsome example.
