Toned with some light wear and surface marks, interesting to note the spelling error, a very rare issue anyway and not present in the Schneider Collection and the only example graded by NGC as AU53.

The Latin legends translate as on the obverse "a dazzling rose without a thorn" in reference to Henry; and on the reverse "Henry 8th By the Grace of God, King of England and France".

The Southwark Mint accounts that survive for 1st May 1547 until 31st December 1548 put the output under mint mark E at £153,285 worth of gold.
