    Sultanate of Aceh
    AV Kupang ND
    Sultan Ala al-din-Ali 1537-71
    So would span five decades! Strange that the Sultanates of Samudra-Pasai and Aceh did not date their coins in AH/ most Islamic rulers did.... 6506_4421046_a_c.jpg

    Debased shillings only for this decade as the fine silver wasn't introduced until 1551.

    1549 8oz shilling with transposed legends - the regnal name is usually on the same side as the portrait

    1549 6oz shilling with mm. arrow (over G on the rev.) signifying the die was prepared for use at York, but the mint never struck any shillings. This was struck at the Tower Mint

    Henry VIII 3rd coinage testoon with mm. pellet in annulet, struck 1544-6

    Henry VIII posthumous groat struck at Southwark. mm. -/E.

    Henry VIII posthumous groat struck at Durham House mm. Bow

    Henry VIII posthumous halfgroat struck at the Tower Mint, mm.K (rev. only)

    1549 6oz shilling struck at Southwark with mm. Y over G.

    Henry VIII posthumous penny struck at the Tower mint with mm. grapple

    Sneak these in before I take a few days off.

    1551 very base 3oz. shilling with mm. Lion

    A fine silver shilling with mm. Tun. Struck 1551-3

    Philip & Mary 1557 sixpence.

    Edward VI base silver penny struck at York with mm. pierced mullet

    Philip & Mary base penny with mm. 1/2 rose and castle. Consensus is that the mintmark reflects the source of the silver used to strike the coins. Those with mm. castle were struck from Philip's silver brought along when he married Mary. Halved rose & castle means it was indeterminate (or maybe from a general mixed silver pot). These were used as a halfpenny due to their low silver content.

    Which brings us to this enigmatic piece. A base penny with mm. Rose. This should mean it was struck from Mary's silver, but there are no mint records to confirm. I know of 3 examples. Not listed in the standard references.
    Edited to add that this could actually be the base penny intended for Ireland. The literature states the penny is of the English type, but amongst the mintmarks used for Irish currency in both P&M and Elizabeth I is rose. Sadly, no proof has come my way.

    And to finish, a Philip & Mary portrait penny in 0.916 silver.

    A coin alluding to some important historical times.King of France at 15 years old and King consort of Scotland at the same time. And then dying just over a year later. Must be lovely to hold something like that in your hand.

    Nice imagery, armoured, galloping horseman, and a stylised eagle. I like that

    This is from my 6 century birth year collection. I put together a collection of silver coins issued from my birth year going back 6 centuries. 1952,1852,1752,1652,1552,1452. Fun to assemble and didn't cost a lot.
