Great Britain Penny, Twopence, Sixpence, and Shilling (James I) 1603 to 1625

James (Jacob, Jacobus) I followed Elizabeth I as monarch of Great Britain. His coins are dated between 1603 and 1625. The catalogs show four denominations, all in silver:

I: Penny
II: Twopence
VI: Sixpence
XII: Shilling

The main factor that determines value of handmade coins like this is not denomination and date, but overall appeal as a collectible. Appeal depends on the strength and centering of the strike, wear from circulation, and lack of damage such as scratches, stains, cleanings, nicks, gouges, and the like. Very roughly:

worn: $25 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $400

Consider the sixpence and shilling shown to the right. The sixpence comes from requester Zoejoe and is heavily worn with un-readable inscriptions around the outside. It is a $30 coin. The shilling (XII) has almost no wear and readable inscriptions. This is a $300 coin.

Please read our page on Elizabeth I coins for further info.
