The initial mark (R) was used for 1644-45. The XII behind the king's head indicates that the coin was worth 12 pennies (one shilling). The reverse legend translates as 'I reign under the auspices of Christ', indicating that Charles believed that having been crowned and annointed he ruled with the blessing of the Almighty.
