Add to album

This is the obverse of a copper coin minted between 1450 and 1480, during the reign of James II or James III. The coin may well have been valued at three pence Scots.

The obverse bears an orb tilted downwards and to the right. The Latin inscription translates as: 'King James, by the Grace of God'.

The coin is an example of the 'black money' struck during the reigns of James II and III. There are a number of references in contemporary documents but the exact dates of issue of most of the coins are unknown.
