In 1660 Charles II was restored as the monarchy, after the death of Charles I
a civil war bought about a brief period of Great Britain as a commonwealth
with no head of state.
In 2010 the Royal Mint issued this Piedfort Silver Proof Five pound coin to
commemorate the 350th Anniversary of this historic event.
The term ‘piedfort’ derived from the French language literally means ‘strong’ ‘foot’
is twice the thickness of a standard coin, so is nice and chunky
