William of Orange  was born 4th November 1650. Originally invited to England to suppress the Jacobite rebellion. Under this reign the Bank of England was founded and the great re-coinage of Britain was undertaken. Many coins were clipped or badly worn. New mints were set up at Bristol, Chester, Exeter, Norwich and York to help with the re-coinage. Some coins were allowed to circulated during this period if they were officially pierced in the centre before they were demonetized.
