OBVERSE : KING JOHN OF ENGLAND SEATED IN THE YEAR 1207, HANDING THE CHARTER CREATING THE BEGINNINGS OF LIVERPOOL TO THE KNEELING STEWARD OF WEST DERBY.Inscriptions : 700TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDATION OF LIVERPOOL, C. DEUS NOBIS HAEC OTIA FECIT 1207 1907, C. Liverpools official history starts on the 28th August 1207, when King John founded the area of Liuerpul granting it the status as an official town in his Royal Charter. The Charter meant a great deal to the small village and people living there. King John invited people to come and live in the area as they could now rent a house and a piece of land to grow things. The Charter meant that the area was being helped to develop there would be a market day established there, and this helped to bring tradesmen in once a week. There was a court to sort out problems, and a ferry to take people across the River Mersey. King John himself saw Liverpool as an ideal place to form a base for his ships to invade Ireland and Wales from. He built a Castle in the area that we now call Castle Street, and in fact the village of Liverpool was only made up of seven streets in this area. Many of these streets survive today; They were Dale Street, Castle Street, Chapel Street, Moor Street (now Tithebarn Street), Bancke Street (now Water Street), Peppard Street (Old Hall Street) and Juggler Street (High Street). Maybe only 100 or 200 people lived in Liverpool at this time. MANY MORE REALLY COOL & HISTORIC NUMISMATIC OFFERINGS..
