Description:
Anne pattern Farthing in silver 1713, Peck-762 (extremely rare), thick large flan of 25mm diameter, a genuine proof with a striated plain edge, PR63 NGC, a perfect proof impression which produced bold details -- a full portrait, crisp tiny design details on the chariot, and a dished appearance as the motifs are surrounded by incredibly high, sharp "toothed" or elongated beaded rims -- while the surfaces are brightly reflective beneath delicate silvery golden blue iridescence. The queen is labeled "Augusta" and certainly looks like a Roman patrician. Her reverse legend, PAX MISSA PER ORBEM, translates as "Peace sent throughout the world." While generically this slogan and the image it surrounds -- of a monarch driving a war chariot while holding an olive branch -- form a traditional expression of peace being gained through war, in this instance its use most likely alludes to the War of the Spanish Succession, which was the principal event during Anne's monarchy. Near the beginning of Queen Anne's reign, at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704, the Duke of Marlborough clobbered the French; after numerous other conflicts of the two sides and their allies, the Treaty of Utrecht was signed in the same year this pattern was made, 1713, which ended the fighting against the French. Charles II had proclaimed dominance of the seas on some of his patterns, and here Anne proclaims the might of her army. This is indeed a wonderful pattern for the most famous of all Farthings.
