Pretty hefty silver for the 16th Century @era. Well done!

This Groschen from the German Duchy of Julish-Kleve-Berg is 22 mm and 1.9 g. The obv inscriptions are MO NO DVC IUL CLI ET ONZ and 1583 while the rev inscription is IN DEO SPES MEA.

No activity for a couple days, so we will drop back to the decade of the 1570s starting this Saturday morning. Last call for your coins minted in the 1580s!

I agree we seem to be running on a 5 to 6 day cycle. Though I think we always want to have a full weekend in there for each decade.

Nice variety for the 1580s!

I;ll kick off the 1570s.

1576 Duchy of Courland & Semigalia 1 schilling
Obv: Heraldic lion. DVCIS CVR ET SEMIGAL
Rev: Crowned SA monogram inside triangular Kettler insignia. MONE NOVA ARGENTE
Kop. 4007

The Duchy of Courland and Semigalia was formed in 1561 when the Livonian order, under its last Grand Master, Gotthard Kettler, was dissolved and its territory partitioned between Lithuania and Sweden. Courland and Semigalia was the southernmost slice, sharing its southern border with the northwest border of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The Kettler family would continue to supply dukes for the next two centuries.
The SA monogram is that of Sigismund Augustus of Poland-Lithuania, who had died 4 years earlier.

That is a lovely lion and a very nice coin, @tdziemia! I notice there is a small fleur-de-lys at the top of the legends - a mint mark? (That is a flower I like, I have plenty of them on my coins ... my contribution today being no exception .)

1577, France, double tournois (2 deniers), Henry III, Paris (A). Copper, 3.1 g, 21 mm. Duplessy 1152, Sombart 4068, Roberts 3631.




Obv: Henry III of France.
Inscription: HENRI III Roi DE FRANce ET POLogne (Henry III King of France and Poland).

Rev: Three fleurs-de-lys (by tradition, 2 d coins have three fleurs-de-lys, 1 d coins have two, and ½ d coins have one).
Inscription: DOVBLE TOVRNOIS (Double [denier] tournois).

This little coin is remarkable in two ways. Firstly, it is (together with a 1 denier coin) the first French coin minted in pure copper, finally replacing the lowest denomination billon coins with their ever decreasing silver content. Secondly, it is the first French coin with inscription entirely in French instead of Latin. The first copper coins were minted in 1577 and were without date (that was added in 1578).

The fleur-de-lis is an interesting connection between the coins. I don't know it's origin on the Courland coin, but I know it was also used on the coins of the City of Riga (also formerly part of Livonia) when it was under Polish-rule, (coins dated 1582 - 1620. So maybe a symbol of Livonia?

This is a great start to the decade of the 1570s! I'm going to add another Swedish Half Öre. This one is dated 1570 and is attributed as Ahl 78. The obv inscription is IOHANN 3 D G REX SVEGI 70, while the rev inscription is MON NO?G VRB STOKHO.

Excellent to see some Swedish coins here! My single Swedish 16th century coin is also a John III.

That would be MONeta NOva REGis VRBs STOKHOlm (King's New Money of the City of Stockholm).

Sweden 1573, 2 öre, John III, Stockholm. Silver, 3.1 g, 24 mm. Ahlström 65b.

Elizabeth I is going to keep me in this for a couple of weeks before I run out at the other end of the 1500s.

This is another tiny coin, designed to give people change of a farthing when farthings would've been too small to produce.

Elizabeth I Three Farthings, 1575

Tower. Silver, 13mm, 0.39g. 3rd Issue. Small bust, rose behind, mintmark eglantine both sides, E: D: G: ROSA: SINE: SPINA: (Elizabeth by the grace of God, a rose without a thorn). CIVI TAS LON DON (S 2571).

The three farthings, three halfpence, threepence and sixpence are marked with a rose behind the queen's head to distinguish them from the penny, halfgroat, groat and shilling (i.e. alternate denominations feature a rose). Presumably, they weren't marked with the values (as had been introduced by Edward VI) so they could be revalued if necessary, but in 1582 the denomination was added to the halfgroat (2 dots).
