Description

Edward IV (1st Reign, 1461-70) gold Ryal ND, also called a Rose-Noble, 119.1 g, S1950, N1549, Light Coinage, Crown or Coronet mm (struck 1467-70), lustrous XF and choice but for an old digger's scrape from about 4 to 5 o'clock reverse in the legend and through some of the beading, otherwise quite pleasing with a good diminutive portrait of the king, all design details and legends clear and generally sharp. On this distinctive type, the central device of the reverse is a sun superimposed on a rose, which was one of Edward's personal badges -- the first appearance of this reverse style, replacing the ornate crowned cross previously used in the design. Many nobles were used in the Flemish wool trade, with the result that numerous pieces were melted abroad and were thereby tragically lost to future collectors; these are fairly scarce today as a type, and most cannot touch this one for quality.
From The BVH Collection.
