Glorious Tudor Silver for you . . .

Henry VIII (1509-1547) had a dramatic reign, and the several changes to the nation’s coinage illustrate the changing fortunes of both the country and the King.
The four-pence coin, or "Groat", was struck between 1526 and 1544 in silver and from 1544 onwards in a far poorer mix of copper and silver, earning Henry the nickname "Old Copper nose".
Our silver groats are dated between 1526-1544, (second coinage).

We do have other variations of the coins bust designs as well as groats produced as Henry VIII first coinage between 1509-1526
