A slide show capturing the stylistic changes to the reverse die used to produce silver crowns, halfcrowns and shillings between 1649 and 1660. Some of these changes were probably necessary to thwart the efforts of counterfeiters of this period. Other very subtle changes were probably there to distinguish special trial work or identify the work of specific personnel at the mint.
