Although pleading innocence, Arthur Mangey was later accused and convicted of clipping coins and was executed at York on October 2nd 1696. However, a search of his Briggate workshop after his death revealed a pair of shears. The mace is always carried before the Lord Mayor at official ceremonies and is representative of Royal Authority.
