CROMWELL SIXPENCE
1658
Cromwell Sixpence 1658
Designed by Thomas Simon.

Obverse portrait of Cromwell as an Emperor with wreath.
Reverse shield of the protectorate.

The Cromwell sixpence is classed as extremely rare with only a
handful known.

In 1738 new dies were made by John Tanner, the chief
engraver of the Royal Mint and some coins were struck from
them. These are known as the "Tanner Copies".

Tanner copies of the sixpence are somewhat larger in size and
have in the past been wrongfully referred to as ninepences.
