The “Cromwell” Broad and Fifty Shillings of 1656

Broad or 50/- piece
Broada
Half Broad

The contemporary denomination was 20 Shillings (immediate predecessor of the Guinea), a lot of money in 1656, and so these were mainly the  property of wealthy merchants and bankers. The mintage, however, was  small, and only four years passed while these coins were the money of the land.

A much rarer coin is the gold half broad.
