A collectable silver shilling of King Charles I, from the mid 17th century. The mint mark "Tun" on both sides indicates it was minted at the famous Tower mint in London, between 1636 to 1638. King Charles the First's style of governing led to the English civil war of 1642-1651 between the Royalists supporting King Charles, and the Parliamentarians, known as the Roundheads.

This shilling with 'XII' behind the bust in roman numerals, represents number 12 (twelve pence being a shilling). It is of good, even tone and has clear details. It could well have been carried in to battle.

Condition: Almost Very Fine.

Obverse: Bust type 3a of Charles I facing left. Group D large XII behind bust, no inner circle with mint mark "Tun". CAROLUS D GMAG BRI FR ET HIB REX

Reverse: Round garnished shield with no inner circle mint mark "Tun" CHRISTO AUSPICE REGNO
