Description

James I (1603-25), Rose Ryal of Thirty Shillings, second coinage (1604-19), Tower mint, mintmark rose (1605-06). Crowned King enthroned facing, holding orb and sceptre, pillars flanking, portcullis below, legend reads IACOBVS DG MAG BRIT FRAN ET HIBER REX. Rev, flat topped quartered coat of arms within large decorative rose, embellished by large sepals and forked fleurs in the spandrels, legend surrounds A DNO FACTVM EST ISTVD ET EST MIRAB IN OCVLIS NRIS, 13.54g (S.2613; N.2079; Schneider 6; Stewartby dies A/a).

A well centred example filled to the brim with armorial heraldry, lustrous toning both sides. Legends legible, evenly toned, some hairlines and flatness in places from a soft obverse strike. Skilfully pierced and plugged, otherwise good very fine. An academic example of the type, priced accordingly. Rare.
