Charles I, Scottish Coronation, 1633.

Charles I (1625-1649), Scottish Coronation, 1633, Silver Medal by N Briot, crowned and draped bust left, CAROLVS . D:G . SCOTIÆ . ANGLIÆ . FR . ET . HIB . REX., rev thistle flower, HINC . NOSTRÆ . CREVERE . ROSÆ. , in exergue CORON . 18 . IVNII . 1633, 29mm, thicker flan (Eimer 123; MI i 265/60). About extremely fine, scarce.

Variety with large cross on crown. Thicker flan.

The medal was struck from more than one set of dies and in different thicknesses. The first set has an inscribed edge and was presumably for presentation to Charles himself, and perhaps immediate family or supporters, as he is believed to have carried one in his pocket. The present example for sale was struck from the same dies as the gold example illustrated by Eimer; he suggests 75 were struck in gold. A third example does not include the artist's initial "B" and is perhaps therefore "after Briot".
