Coin (Obverse), bodle or turner, from reign of Charles II

This is the obverse of a copper turner or bodle minted in Edinburgh in 1677, during the reign of Charles II. The coin was worth two pence Scots.

The obverse bears a crown over a crossed sword and sceptre. The Latin inscription translates as: 'Charles, by the Grace of God, King of Scots, England, France and Ireland '.

Charles was proclaimed King of Scots shortly after his father's execution in 1649, and was crowned on 1st January 1651. No coins were struck until his restoration to the English throne in 1660, and no gold coins appeared during his reign at all.
