A rose ryal is worth 30 shillings; you can see a roman numeral 30 on the reverse.
This gold coin comes from the third period (1619–25) of coinage of King James I of England and features a crowned shield surrounded by roses and lions on the reverse. This is the last medieval design of the king enthroned, an excellent example of the fine designs that the ancient craftsmen managed to produce on hand-struck hammered coins.
