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.

Edward II, Penny (Long Cross) London/Canterbury Fine

Edward II also called Edward of Caernarfon, was King of England from 1307 until he was deposed in January 1327. Following the death of his father Edward “Longshanks”, Edward succeeded to the throne in 1307. The “Long Cross Penny” was the largest coin of the period and those of Edward II closely resemble those of his father. He adopted the same bust and legend. It takes a trained eye to spot differences in the lettering and the King's crown to spot a genuine Edward II. The pennies on offer here come in “Fine”. They are from London or Canterbury Mints, depending on availability. You have the crowned bust of the King on one side, under the name of Edward I. On the reverse you have CIVI TAS LONDON or CIVI TAS CANTOR, meaning “City of London (or Canterbury)”. This is the first time we have accumulated enough Edward II Pennies to offer you in almost three years, so get one while you can.
