Union of the Crowns -1707

Recommended Posts

Neat! What size was this, and was it cast or milled?

It is 24mm (roughly one inch) in diameter and was struck on a thin silver flan. This example appears to have seen significant `circulation' but it is unlikely to have been passed off as coin of the realm.

It is neat. Seems quite well worn. Pocket piece or circulation as currency?

yes, it is very well worn and although I can only surmise as to how that has come about, I suspect you are spot on thinking of it as being a pocket piece. It may have been a common item at one point, but there's not many around and when they do appear they are in much the same condition as this one. I was lucky to buy this one from a seller in France, and for only a few quid.
