Elizabeth I (1558‑1603), fine gold Sovereign of Thirty Shillings, sixth issue (1583‑1600), mintmark escallop (1584‑86), full facing robed Queen seated on large throne, pillar either side, throne back of pellets in cross hatching, portcullis below dividing legend, tressure and beaded border, legend reads ELIZABETH DG ANG FRA ET HIB REGINA. Rev, quartered coat of arms at centre of ornate Tudor rose, beaded inner circle, reads A DNO FACTV EST ISTVD ET EST MIRAB OCVLIS NRS, 15.25g (S.2529; N.2003; Schneider 780). A fully centred strike on a round and full flan, lustrous gold toning with subtle original mint bloom, some reflective elements beneath the legends. The Queen, throne, pillars, cross hatching and portcullis all bold and equally impressive, some die breaks both sides. Rev, coat of arms, rose, legends, inner and outer borders all well struck, one small 'x' scratch etching above the English shield. An excellent example, all the detail expressed clearly. Extremely Fine.
