English Hammered Coins of the Stuarts, 1603 to 1663

Between 1066 and 1662, coins were minted in London and in a number of regional mints by hammering a thin disc of silver (or gold) between two coin 'dies'.  These are known as Hammered Coins.

Hammered Coins are all rare as each king or queen called in the coins of the previous monarch to melt and re-use the silver.
