Our Charles I Threepence is a reproduction Silver Threepence from1638 - 1639 *** Made from sterling silver. During this time period coin presses existed for minting coins, however they still used the faster traditional hammering method to produce the original coins. Each of our replica historic coins will satisfy the needs of living history groups and coin collectors. These coins are semi-replica hammered coins that really do look and feel authentic. Weights, alloys, and fineness are kept close to the originals making these replica medieval coins the best on the market. Original coins are carefully analyzed to determine engraving techniques used to recreate the dies in fine detail. To assure that these coins are not mistaken as the real thing, the legend is slightly altered to distinguish these coins for what they are. Additionally, an example of each replica coin is held by Museums for reference. Obverse - Portrait of King Charles Ist with III mark of value. The original mintmark of a lion has been replaced. Reverse - A medieval heater type shield with the quarters containing a harp, a lion, leopards and fleurs-de-lys in an inner circle.
