Lord Baltimore



In Maryland, Cecil Calvert, Lord Baltimore, contracted with England's Royal Mint to produce silver coins valued respectively at one shilling, six pence and four pence. These carried no date, but they were made around 1659, during the Commonwealth period when England had no king and was ruled by Parliament. The number minted is unknown, and they evidently circulated in the Maryland Colony for just a few years. All are rare and highly sought by collectors today.
