Charles I Gold Unite 1625-49AD £2,450.00
Charles I Gold Unite 1625-49AD
33mm, 8.99g

The Unite, first introduced by James I to replace the sovereign, was struck again under Charles I as a 20-shilling (£1) gold coin. This issue, for the first time, had a figure 'XX' on the obverse besides the portrait of Charles to denote a value of 20-shillings.

This example of a group B, second (elongated) bust coin, was struck at the tower mint under the king and shows the 'anchor' mintmark for 1628/9.
