I love it and it shows the imperial crown that Henry wore.

Great coin and lots of history.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

OK, might get shot down for this but it's Stuart and I think it's stunning, it's just not a coin! Royalist badge of Charles I. On it's way to me as I type and I'm a bit excited about it!

English Civil War period, probably dating from around 1644 according to Farquhar and designed by Thomas Rawlins when he, the King and the Queen were all in Oxford.

Bare headed bust of Charles I to obverse, reverse of Queen Henrietta Maria. Signed T.RAWLINS.F below.

Cast silver, chased and gilt. 1 inches (43mm) at longest side, including the suspension loops (to allow it to be worn on a cord or sewn into clothing). 'Somewhat rare'.

Just an update now my badge has arrived to show the size. Quite pleased with this, although it's clearly had some wear, that was after all the purpose of it. Most of the gilding is intact with just a bit of wear to the high points. About a UK VF, with the reverse better. Possibly the weakness to the obverse is that it's from a later casting. Weighs a little over 11g, (0.4 ounces for those that still use them) so feels solid in the hand.

I've managed to track it back to a 2013 Davissons sale (it was in another two subsequent sales through UK auction houses) but at the moment, no earlier.

It did come with a loop for suspension, though I suspect this is modern as it looks like rolled gold* and doesn't fit the tray too well, so I've left it off. Anyway, a nice complementary item to my collection of Charles I shillings.

*Edit. On closer inspection, the loop is solid and un-hallmarked and so appears to be more or less contemporary with the badge itself (though it's a slightly redder gold). Now, if I can just find some provenance to a collector prior to 2013, I'll be very happy!

Well, I didn't get booted off for the last post and haven't found any shillings to add to my collection so here's my latest purchase, another Charles I supporter's badge. Hope it's ok.

MI 355/216 is the reference. 11.44g of silver. 38mm x 29 mm. Dating from (approximately) 1642. From a design by Thomas Rawlins, chief engraver to the king [from 1647].

Little bit of repair work at 6 o'clock, probably from when the suspension loops were removed in antiquity.

Impressive!

Still tangentially related to the topic as well.
