More coins were produced in Elizabethan times than in any other period, in fact Elizabeth 1 tomb bore the inscription “money restored to its rightful value”.
Why was money so important during Elizabeth’s reign? These historical coins provide a great starting point for any topic and will create great points for historical enquiry. These coins look, feel and sound authentic. With teacher’s notes.
Why not combine these with coins from different historical periods and place them in chronological order, or use the coins as a cross-curricular maths activity?
