Charles I Newark Siege Half Crow

This Charles I Newark Siege Half Crown has been lovingly reproduced and hand finished to the original design to look as authentic as possible.

This coin would have been minted at Newark, during the English Civil War when the city was under siege. In November 1645, Charles I was stationed at Newark.Parlimentary forces arrived to besiege the city and blocked all approaches. Charles escaped and fled to Oxford but the governor of Newark, Lord Belasyse, refused to give in.

The governor melted down gold and silver plate to make these siege coins to pay his subjects to fight and to keep building defences, and to ensure trade could continue within the city.

This faithfully reproduced coin comes attached to an information card in a protective plastic wallet.
