RELIG: PROT: LEG: ANGL: LIBER:  This is the King’s undertaking to uphold the Protestant religion, the laws of the kingdom, and the freedoms and privileges of Parliament.  Struck on a large full flan which is slightly irregular as is usual for this type.  EF the reverse better and virtually mint state, with some original lustre.
