    of any collection It s allure is undebatable and yet the basis of this appeal is a contentious issue The coin was struck for only 3 years towards the end of the reign of Charles I and yet remains instantly recognisable and eminently collectable today So just what is its appeal Is it perhaps that Charles I s reign was so short Or maybe because it was such a memorable and remarkable period in British history Remember remember the Guy Fawkes plot is still commemorated today the dissolution of Parliament led to the English Civil War Or is it more aesthetic than that There can be little argument that in all its varieties it is a stunningly beautiful item a definitive talking point to sit at the centre of a well presented collection Perhaps it is none of these things or a combination of all Or perhaps it is simply that they are rare enough that finding a good fine version takes some considerable effort The Charles I gold Triple Unite lot 1035 1642 27 1g Oxford Mint for sale in our New York Auction XXXVII on 6th January 2016 Starting Price 65 000 What do you think What is the greatest appeal of the Triple Unite Tell us below Posted in The Baldwin s Blog By Richard West Leave a comment 2 item s Items per page 10 Einar Frigland posted on 5 Jan 2016 08 13 34 Charles I had the most magnificent coin in the history of England made and then he was executed as a traitor With all its splendour the coin therefore carries a distinctly uneasy feeling It may be seen as a symbol of how high you can climb before you fall the golden token of an impossible dream Marek Siemiradzki posted on 27

  • Baldwin's - Buy and Sell Rare Coins - The Baldwin's Blog - The £30,000 coin born in a cutlery drawer
    the political and regnal manoeuvring that led to letting loose the dogs of war have been much documented For the numismatist however one of the most fascinating aspects of the period was the emergence of the obsidional coin When a city came under siege the flow of money just as the flow of food water and other amenities was severely restricted and provisions had to be made in order to pay the garrisons trapped alongside the residents inside the city walls To this end new coins were created produced and distributed amongst the soldiers In October 1644 General Alexander Leslie the 1 st Earl of Leven after the successful storming of Newcastle travelled west to lay siege to Carlisle The city was blockaded until surrendering on 25 June 1645 and during that relatively short period no coinage was permitted to enter or leave the city A solution had to be found so that the forces on the inside could receive their wages and that solution was to create entirely new coins that could be used as currency A shortage of physical money in the pocket is something that in modern days is difficult to contemplate With so many transactions conducted electronically we have developed a tendency to take it for granted and any shortage of coinage is generally due to poor fiscal management rather than any shortage of supply In the case of Carlisle in 1644 it was the lack of raw materials that presented the problem Coins are made of metal and Carlisle like so many cities is distinctly short on mines The solution was to request the donation of plate from the townsfolk themselves that could be melted down and turned into coinage From this donated plate coins of two denominations were minted the Three Shilling piece and the Shilling piece the former being the rarer and therefore producing the lower survival rate Examples of both feature in our auction We know that in Carlisle exactly 1 162 pounds of plate was donated and we also know that 21 of those pounds was lost in meltynge and working giving us a fair idea of just how many of these coins were produced In fact we know a great deal about the siege of Carlisle and what went on behind those barricaded walls and for this we are indebted to a young man named Leslie Tullie His Narrative of the Siege of Carlisle still exists and contains much of great interest to the historian not least his meticulous recording of all the plate donated For example Oz Will Atkinson A trencher salt three spoones 012 1 2 0 Julian Aglionby one boule 008 1 2 0 Edmond Kidd two boules 015 3 4 0 Mary Carlile one bowle and 8 spoones 015 3 4 0 Amongst the many wonderful things that the complete list of over one hundred and eighty three pieces that were donated along with numerous pieces of broken plate tells us is that whilst Mr Tullie
