A genuine coin of Oliver Cromwell

A glorious union of exquisite detail, entrancing hues, rich British history and immense rarity, this is an irresistible opportunity to secure a genuine coin of Oliver Cromwell – a key leader of Parliamentary military forces in the English Civil Wars of the 1640s.

Fanatical regicide or champion of liberty?

Playing a key role in the execution of King Charles I, and in the abolition of the monarchy and establishment of Republican rule, Oliver Cromwell is a controversial figure. Over time, he has been dubbed a father of democracy, a fanatical regicide, a champion of liberty and a genocidal maniac – among many colourful descriptions. Although historians disagree about this larger-than-life character, there is no debate about his importance. A man whose name reverberates down the centuries, to hold a coin of Oliver Cromwell is to hold the history of modern Britain within your hands.

A great British rarity…

Struck toward the end of the period of republican government, before the Restoration of the Monarchy under King Charles II in 1660, Cromwell portrait coins are excessively rare. Thought to have been struck as patterns, it’s no surprise that coins such as the 1658 Cromwell Silver Shilling are known by the tiniest number of examples – and are so sought after worldwide.

A breathtaking example…

The coin before you is a truly breathtaking example of this immensely rare English coin type. Underpinned by exceptional detail, a strong portrait, very little wear to the high points and mesmerising gunmetal grey old world tone, this handsome 1658 Cromwell Silver Shilling is presented in Extremely Fine.

The 1658 Cromwell Silver Shilling would make a commanding centrepiece of any collection. With only one available, however, immediate action is a must – press add to cart now!
