BullionByPost is proud to offer numismatic collectors a growing range of rare collectable coins, including this rare 1658 Cromwell Shilling - produced the year that Oliver Cromwell died. This coin contains 5.6 grams of silver and is 92.5% purity aka Sterling Silver.

Interestingly, these coins were well circulated but are officially designated as Pattern coins as they were not meticulously tested for their weight and purity. The coins were removed from circulation in 1661.

You will receive the actual coin pictured and your items will dispatched as soon as we receive your funds. For a more detailed view please hover your cursor over the image.

The obverse of the coin depicts Oliver Cromwell wearing a laureate crown, surrounded by the latin 'OLIVAR. D.G.R.P. ANG. SCO. HIB &c PRO', which translates to Oliver by the Grace of God, Protector of the Republic of England, Scotland and Ireland.

The reverse features the coin's date - 1658 - as well as a crowned coat of arms and more latin: PAX QVÆRITVR BELLO or 'Peace is sought by war'.

Oliver Cromwell was an English military and political leader. He opposed the rule of the monarchy and orchestrated two English Civil Wars - the second of which saw him become the Lord Protector of the Commonwealth after the execution of Charles I.

Cromwell ruled until his death in 1658, following which his son Richard ruled for nearly a year and was then replaced by the English Council of State, who ruled until 1660 when Charles II returned to England and re-established the monarchy and claimed the throne amidst political turmoil.
