Description

Elizabeth I (1558-1603), Sixth issue, ‘Crown Gold’ Pound, initial mark key over woolpack (c.1594-98), crowned bust in ruff and elaborate dress left, legend reads ELIZABETH D G ANG FRA ET HIBER REGINA. Rev, crowned quartered shield of arms, E to left, R to right, legend surrounds SCVTVM FIDEI PROTEGET EAM, 11.13g (S.2534; N.2008; Schneider 801).

A handsome example, some die breaks manifesting as swirls in front of nose and near the HI of Hiber, also by the right hand field. [These die breaks or flaws are known for the type, see Ex St James Auction 10, 6th November 2008, lot 689 for a textbook example]. A nice clear strike of the mintmark on both sides, lower half of the bust excellent, weakness of strike to the top of portrait, in the crown region. Good very fine.
