1642 Triple Unite 3 Pounds Charles I England Oxford S-2724 NGC MS61 27.02 Grams




The Triple Unite was minted at the command of Charles I between 1642 and 1644, almost exclusively at the mint facility in Oxford. At a face value of 3 pounds, it was the largest denomination of hammered coinage produced. An extremely rare version of the coin was minted at Shrewsbury in 1642.

These coins were produced at a time of stress and upheaval. Charles I had recently moved his capital from London to Oxford, following the Battle of Edgehill. There is some thought that he commissioned the production of the coins to show that Oxford was a rich and prosperous alternative to London.

It is estimated that today, less that 250 of these coins remain.
