Oliver Cromwell gold Pattern Broad of 20 Shillings 1656 VF Details

Om föremålet

KM-Pn25, S-3225, W&R-39. The precursor to the Guinea and a spectacular piece of numismatic history. After the English Civil War terminated in 1649 with the execution of King Charles I, Oliver Cromwell, the leader of the anti-monarchist Parliamentarians, became Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England. Seven years later, through combining the masterful engraving of Thomas Simon and the engineering know-how of Pierre Blondeau, the Cromwell portrait series was created. A step towards hypocritically representing Cromwell as King, this milled coinage featured the Lord Protector wearing a laureate wreath and the reverse shield featuring a crown, its overall quality a huge step up from previous issues. This piece has seen some damage, plugged through the 5 in date and with harshly cleaned surfaces. However, it retains strong detail and as a type its iconography and historical significance is near-unmatched. As such, this represents an excellent opportunity to obtain a specimen at an attainable price. HID07601242017
