Edward I, Penny (London) Very Good
In the reign of King Edward I, 1272-1307, the largest denomination in circulation was the Silver Penny. They were of a such good silver quality that they were illegally exported and melted down. You have a facing portrait of the King on the obverse and a cross on the reverse. This cross facilitated the cutting of the coin to make farthings or half pennies. We can also supply them from the London and the Canterbury Mint. These were the largest denomination struck over 700 years ago.
