ENGRAVED IN HISTORY

Read the Booklet

Thomas Simon is one of the greatest engravers to have ever worked at The Royal Mint. Born around 1618, he lived through the English Civil Wars, the rule of England’s only republic and the restoration of the monarchy. Weathering political storms and mastering new production techniques, he worked on the coinage of Charles I, the Commonwealth of England, and Charles II, producing a series of astonishing designs that rank amongst the finest in British numismatics.

This exclusive premium set is the ultimate celebration of Simon’s extraordinary talent. Carefully curated to include rarities and highlights from each stage of his career, the set brings together a hammer-struck silver crown from the reign of Charles I, a machine-struck Cromwell gold broad, and a modern interpretation of the Petition Crown that Simon famously designed to plead reinstatement, by Charles II, to engrave the coinage.
