Edward II, Penny Fine

Edward II was the 4th child of Edward I, he came to the throne in 1307 and was deposed in 1327. Some say it was because of sexual interests others say it was because of his defeat by Robert the Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn. His was a short period as King and the largest coin struck was the Silver Penny. We have accumulated a small group in two different grades. These coins are very similar to those of his Father only distinguishable for slight changes to the details of the dies. Not an easy monarch to get coins from and these Silver Pennies are the largest denomination struck by King Edward II.
