Edward I, Penny (Durham) Very Good
In the reign of King Edward I (1272-1307) the largest denomination made was the silver Penny. It was of such high quality that the coins were smuggled out of this country, melted down and lower grade imitations made. You have the facing portrait of the King on one side and two crossed lines on the other side to help you to know where to cut it, into halfpennies and farthings. These silver pennies are over 700 years old. We have selected coins struck in Durham, just to make them a little bit rarer and more desirable. Supplies are very limited and we know you will love them, especially if you are from Durham.
