Charles II, 1660-85. Tin Farthing, 1684.

Charles II, 1660-85. Tin Farthing, 1684.

  • Charles II was King from the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, after the Commonwealth led by Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell ended in 1658. Charles II had fled to Europe after the execution of his father and his defeat at the battle of Worcester. The political crisis that later followed the death of Cromwell resulted in the restoration of the monarchy, and Charles was invited to return to Britain where he reigned until his death.


    The tin issue coinage of Charles II, James II and William III and Marry are often in poor condition, showing little portrait or detail due to common corrosion or damage. This Farthing has signs of such corrosion to the edges, which is a typical degrading of a poor metal. This coin however shows a clear and attractive portrait, the reverse Britannia seated. The edges have chipping, the two last digits of the date are visible on the edge. Overall the coin is attractive, with a good colour and desirable portrait.
