Elizabeth I, 1558-1603, Shilling, 2nd Issue, mm Martlet. Good Very Fine with an excellent portrait.

Elizabeth I 6d Poor

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a Sixpence in your shoe – goes the wedding saying. That goes back to the time of Elizabeth I, when a woman got married she became a chattel of her husband. A wise woman had a Sixpence in her shoe in case her husband mistreated her, she would have money to run away with. Shows you how far money went then. These Elizabeth I Silver Sixpences are in very worn condition, there is no other way to describe them. They were made about 1558-1603. On one side you have the rough portrait of Elizabeth I and on the reverse you should have a shield with a cross on it. The coins on offer are all original and genuine, but the condition leaves a lot to be desired. We cannot say else wise, because it would be a lie. No, they are not beautiful but they are silver, they are over 400 years old and they are a Sixpence of Elizabeth I. These are good cheap examples of a very old British coin. We have tried to keep the price as low as their condition. They are poor condition but then again they are 400 years old!

Elizabeth I 6d Very Good

In the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the coins were struck in silver, if on very thin blanks. To help the people who could not read or write, they alternated the coins. Every other denomination had a date and a rose on them. The Sixpence is one of those coins that come dated, usually in the 1500’s. Please remember these coins are over 400 years old and when we get to that age, we won’t be brand new either… The coins are all dated on the reverse, because of the thinness of the planchet the designs are not struck up as well as modern coins. But they were issued in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.
