    Welcome to CT and have to agree with Aiden, quite a common coin, but a nice start to a collection :thumb: whatever you do though please dont clean it or it will loose most of what value it has.

    And it only got a little distance from England before it sank on Goodwind Sands off the Straits of Dover.
    I bought one several years ago from London Coin Gallery with a COA verifying that it was a wreck recovery coin and it cost me about $20 if I remember correctly.Probably too much but it's interesting,history wise.:)
    The ship was recovered in 1985 and it's cargo was found in wax sealed kegs which accounts for their remarkable condition despite 198 years in salt water.
