Rose for Rose-noble

.

A gold coin worth 6s. 8d. struck in 1344, under Edward III.; so called because it had a rose, the badge of the Lancastrians and Yorkists.

“De la pistole,

De la guinée, et de lʹobole,

Du louis dʹor, du ducaton,

De la rose, et du patagon.”


Jacques Moreau, in Virgils Travesti.
