Oliver Cromwell half crown offered in 17th June specialist coin auction

27th May 2015

Coins of Oliver Cromwell are always very popular in our specialist coin auctions, and the 1658 half crown we are offering in our 17th June auction is an exceptional example.

This series of coins was a quantum leap in terms of production quality, being machine made from dies by Thomas Simon, in the presses of Pierre Blondeau. Because of the death of Cromwell in September 1658, the production run was very short lived.
