Issued in commemoration of the siege endured by the royalists at Pontefract Castle in October 1648. Having held off Oliver Cromwell's troops, they issued this type in the name of Charles II, after the execution in London of his father on January 30, 1649. The legend reads "POST MORTEM PATRIS PRO FILIO," or "After the Death of the Father, we support the Son." The royalists finally surrendered in March 1649 when the futility of their situation became obvious.
