After a long exile in France, Charles II returned to England after the fall of the Protectorate in 1660. The production of hammered coins continued until early in 1663 at which point milled coins were introduced, produced on the machinery of Blondeau. There were three issues of hammered silver coins, and these are detailed in the table, and examples illustrated below. The hammered gold coins are on a separate page.
The images of threepence coins shown below are courtesy of Dave Greenhalgh - although some of the images are not the highest quality they are included in the interests of illustrating the widest possible variety of dies. Where DIG references are given these relate to the dies illustrated in his book, "The Galata Guide to Hammered and Milled Threepenny Pieces, 1551-1662".
