12 points - -1 point for size as 20mm is borderline and as I am after big silver coins, I round it down.

1 point for silver purity as halfgroats were a very LOW denomination coin and often had under 50% silver and some even were basically billion.

However you get 5 points for a battle scene, your knight is charging on the horse and is holding his sword ready to cut the enemy down - so you get battlepoints.


Great entry - it's going to be hard to top.

PS I used 1790 and I knew I would see a sea of early 19th century American coins that have absolutely nothing to do with Renaissance Europe and bewigged rulers surrounded by lions, crowns, medieval castles and heart shaped ruffs.

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Great work, 15 points and love that hair! Even better 1765 is quite late for such crazy hair. by that era the Peruke (George Washington/Captain Cook) style wig was in fashion. This dude's hair screams more 50 years earlier than 1765!

Post your coin with a ship. Oldest wins. Ship must be part of the design, but not part of a family or national coat of arms.

Okay, no family or shields makes it hard






1799 Great Britain halfpenny - there is a ship at far left on the horizon, a fully rigged sailing ship.
