From September 1644 until its surrender to the Parliamentarians, Chester was for the most part under siege. Coinage was only produced for a short period during 1645. On 31 January of that year (NS), the Corporation ordered the conversion of £100-worth of plate into coin 'for the necessary use and defence of this citty'. Chester surrendered to its Parliamentary besiegers under Sir William Brereton on 3 February 1646 (NS). For a detailed survey and a possible chronology of the Chester issues see Pearce (SNC January 2014, pp.140-2)
