    Those are some nice coins @Antonius Britannia.

    I've already posted this earlier today in another thread, but this particular coin is probably one of my best junk-box finds as I only paid 25 cents (0.18p) for it.

    I think I have 1 of each:
    Elizabeth I, 6 pence, 1581
    Anne, Shilling, 1711 (Love Token)
    The Anne shilling is one of my favorite coins, even though it is a love token.

    Here is another English queen, Bloody Mary, but I am afraid she has a husband with her

    Philip & Mary Sixpence 1555

    @The Eidolon lovely examples!

    @talerman Nice sixpence! I always felt sorry for Marry, it must have been awful when Phillip passed so soon after their marriage.

    I am not sure what you mean by pass. It was a political marriage aimed at bringing England back into the Catholic world. Philip was 26, 11 years Mary’s junior, and had a son from a previous marriage. Mary appears to have been genuinely in love with him but, although he did not treat her badly, he did not love her and found her unattractive. They were apart more often than together. After Philip's departure from England in July 1557, Mary never saw him again. She was lonely. She died in 1558. Philip died in 1598, having married two more women who both deceased him, Elisabeth de Valois and Anna of Austria (his niece, in the Habsburg fashion).
