Charles I, Rose Farthing Very Good

In the reign of King Charles I (1625-49) to get from one side of the Thames to the other cost a copper Farthing in a small rowing boat. Unfortunately, many of these small boats didn’t make it and turned over and in many cases, the people on board couldn’t swim, so they and the money were lost. A number of years ago when they dredged The Thames, mudlarks or treasure seekers followed the boats to where they were dumping the silt. They then went through the silt looking for coins and other artefacts. One of them, a licensed Mudlark, found quite a few Charles I Rose Farthings in the silt, where they had lain since they were lost when the rowboats tipped over. He held them for years and only recently sold them to us. The silt kept the coins in nice condition and they are available here in Very Good, remember that these smallest copper coins are almost 400 years old and perhaps still good for a trip across the Thames…
