1656 Gold Broad Pattern Oliver Cromwell NGC PF62 Cameo
Oliver Cromwell Gold Pattern Broad. Proof, Cameo. One of the most in-demand British coins ever struck. Simply extraordinary! A simply astounding Proof type that acts as a mirror into contemporary English history, the gold Broads of Oliver Cromwell quite noticeably lay out just how tenuous the arrangements made at the conclusion of the English Civil War really were. Laying aside at least one particular aspect of the recently overturned monarchy very definitively, Cromwell's dedication to beautifying the coinage of the realm cannot be doubted, particularly compared with the general lack of attention paid during the reign of Charles I.
