James I Plume reverse Crown

James I (1603-25), silver Crown, third coinage, struck from Welsh mined silver with plumes over shield on reverse, armoured King on horseback right, sword on shoulder, caparisoned horse, grass ground-line below, beaded borders with abbreviated Latin legend surrounding, initial mark trefoil struck over lis both sides (1624-25), IACOBVS D: G: MAG: BRI: FRAN: ET HIB: REX, rev. Welsh plumes over quartered shield of arms, beaded borders with abbreviated Latin legend surrounding, QVAE DEVS CONIVNXIT NEMO SEPARET, first N inverted, weight 29.72g (N.2121 R; S.2665). One small rim imperfection, toned, weak in parts on horse and legend, almost very fine and rare.

The Latin legends translates on obverse as "James by the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France and Ireland" and on the reverse "What God hath joined, let no man put asunder" referring to the uniting of the Kingdoms of Scotland and England, hence the first use of the title "Great Britain - Magnae Britanniae."

The plumes on the reverse indicates this coin is made from the Cardiganshire mines under the control of Sir Hugh Myddleton which had opened in 1617.
