During the reign of Charles II, interrupted by the 11 year break of Commonwealth coinage of Cromwell, the last hand-hammered coins were produced in 1662, and all coins were then milled or machine made. A process which started under Elizabeth I was completed, and in just over a century coinage production had fully entered the machine age.
The obverse shows the third portrait of Charles II, draped laureate head. The legend reads CAROLVS II DEI GRATIA which translates to Charles II by the Grace of God.
The reverse design is the royal coat of arms; crowned emblematic shields with interlinked Cs in angles and garter star in the centre. The coin bears the legend reads MAG BR FR ET HIB REX which is Latin for King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, with the date split 16 71.
