Richard II, 1377-1399, Gold Noble
S-1661, N-1307, 7.7 grams, 34mm. Calais mintmark, king standing facing in ship holding sword and shield, flag at stern, RIC ARD DEI GRA REX ANGL DNS HIB Z AQ, reverse: floriated cross with fleurs-de-lis at ends, R at center, double saltire stops, mintmark cross pattée on reverse only. This is a well-struck example of a very rare coin, produced during the early part of the reign of the ill-fated King Richard II. The style of the English gold coinage changed very little during the 13th and 14th centuries, and if anything, the Nobles of Richard II were of a slightly cruder style. This, coupled with the fact that Richards's reign was much shorter than that of his grandfather, Edward III, makes the appearance and acquisition of a specimen such as this all the more remarkable.
