Royal Mint Product Description:

Queen Anne's reign coincided with Sir Isaac Newton's tenure as Master of the Mint. With his pursuit of counterfeiters such as William Chaloner complete, the great scientist turned his attention fully to his other obsession - the quality and accuracy of Britain's coinage. Newton was industrious and coins of this period are renowned for their fineness and are a testament to Newton's exacting standards.

The halfcrown was first issued in 1549 during the reign of Edward VI, and from Elizabeth I onwards, crowns were issued during every reign except for Edward VIII until their withdrawal in 1967. Despite their monarchist associations, Oliver Cromwell commissioned a halfcrown bearing his portrait when he appointed himself Lord Protector. This coin is offered in -Fine or Better' condition, retaining the clarity and definition of its crowned cruciform design.
