Description

James I gold Unite ND (1604-19), S2618, Schneider-22, 2nd Coinage of 1604-19, rose mm (1605-06), AU50 NGC, lustrous and most pleasing because of its excellent flan which is almost perfectly round without cracks, its excellent strike which shows the portrait in great detail and most of the reverse crowned shield, its clear legends and mm making it enjoyable to study, and what are really quite exceptional surfaces. Yes, a few light abrasions, faint scuffs, and a short deeper scratch before the king's nose, but Unites do not generally come as nice as this one. The unusual portrait aligns the king's beard with his armor, a distinguishing feature of the Second Bust. The reverse legend was changed from that used on the First Coinage, which was taken from Psalm 68 and originally chosen for the coinage by the king himself (translated to "Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered"), to a new and shorter motto, in Latin, meaning "I will make them one nation" (from the biblical book of Ezekiel), reflecting the great social change also stated as "MAG BRIT" in the obverse legend, the unification of the land formerly "of the English" to one nation called "Great Britain." Not only is this a lovely coin, it's also historic.
