Well-cast, the representation is quite detailed, with images of the bowls, his refreshments on a small table and his sword with its ornate hilt on the ground behind him. Beneath the very deeply cast figure an ornate furled banner is marked ADMIRAL SIR FRANCIS DRAKE. Quite difficult to read, but on the back of the knock it has the number 698132, a design number registered in 1923. Sir Francis Drake (c.1540 - c.1596) was an Elizabethan sailor and navigator, and the first Englishman to circumnavigate the globe. Seven months later Elizabeth knighted him aboard the Golden Hind, to the annoyance of the king of Spain. Measures approximately 4.2 inches (10.7 cms) high x 2.2 inches (55mm) at its widest. Weighs 100g. Sizes given above and 20p piece (measures approximately 21mm in diameter) shows scale.
