Broad (English gold coin)

The Broad was an English coin worth 20 shillings issued by the Commonwealth of England in 1656. It was a milled gold coin weighing 9.0–9.1 grams, with a diameter of 29 or 30 millimetres, designed by Thomas Simon. The obverse of the coin depicts the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell as a laureated Roman emperor, with the inscription OLIVAR D G R P ANG SCO HIB &c PRO — Oliver, by the Grace of God, of the Republic of England, Ireland etc. Protector, while the reverse shows a crowned shield depicting the arms of the Commonwealth with the inscription PAX QVAERITVR BELLO 1656 -- Peace is sought through war; the current value of the coin in "very fine" to "extremely fine" condition is £3,500 to £6,000 as the pieces are rare, but fairly unworn, although a Mr Pinkerton, writing at the time that the coins circulated, noted that many of the coins in circulation were so worn as to be flat. A piedfort version of the coin with an edge inscription is known as a Fifty shilling piece; this is rare, there are few examples as it is a pattern.

The changes put the focus back on the more traditional art of scoring; the weightage for field goals were double compared to the goals scored from penalty corners, meaning a field goal would count as two while converted short corner would still be considered as one goal. It was called a pilot project, if successful, would be introduced globally. Source: Pool standingsRules for classification: 1) points.
