Long cross over a trefoil of pellets in each quarter, legend in two circles around, POSVI DEVM ADIVTOREM MEVM, CIVITAS LONDON.This historic coin was minted during the House of York's first visit to the throne in 1461. Edward controversially married Elizabeth Woodville (the'White Queen') in 1464, but the throne was lost in 1470 as a result of the unrelenting struggle for power with the Lancastrians, known as the'War of the Roses'. His second reign during 1471-83 brought relative peace to the country. He had ten children with Elizabeth, seven of which survived him.
This varies with the age of coin and there are grades in between. As struck with no traces of wear. Very slight traces of wear, all parts of legend etc present, visible and clear. Some signs of wear on the higher parts of the relief, all parts of legend etc present, but maybe worn.
