THE ANGEL (1619-1634) - for his third coinage James I again reduced the weight, this time to 65½ grains, and revalued to 10 shillings. Charles I continued to issue the coin in his name until 1634. Contemporary square weights for James I are known. The later round weights have the usual St. Michael spearing dragon obverse but are without the surrounding legend which distinguishes them from the earlier and heavier weights.
