That’s not just any old coin. That’s an English hammered silver coin,’
He recognized it as a rare English shilling from 1551-53, issued during Edward VI’s brief reign.

Herbst alerted historian Samuel Bawlf, who has long argued that Sir Francis Drake explored the B.C. coast on a secret mission in 1579 — 200 years before the arrival of Capt. James Cook.

Very cool find for Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Very interesting.

It's a pity we can't see the coin, just a man holding a coin!

Doesn't prove a thing without further evidence that it was there from near the time it was minted.
