Mary I as sole ruler 1553-54. Undated groat (I see @paddy also posted one of these back on the first page). Took a gamble on the scratches, and they are less noticeable in hand than in photo.

Any idea why no rulers ever appeared on the Angels?


I don't know the answer, but would observe that a number of other contemporary gold coins (circa 1500) also lacked a ruler's portrait: Italian florins, the French ecu, the Brabant florin.
Though I agree that generally speaking portraits were more common on English coins than either of these other places.

For a scarce historical coin like that, which is well-struck on a nearly circular flan, mostly complete readable legends, clear portrait, and superb shield details, the light scratches become trivial.

Thanks all!

t360, yes, it's a challenge to find ones that are nice and round - particularly later ones - I think quality control rather went out the window as the political situation worsened! Those are of course, a selected handful! I have others, but not perhaps quite as pleasing to my eye. Another time for those perhaps. :)
