Edward I, Penny (London Mint) Very Good

Edward I, also known as Edward Longshanks reigned from 1272 to 1307. Historians have conflicting opinions on his reign, many credit the Monarch for restoring royal authority after the reign of Henry III, establishing Parliament as a permanent institution, and reforming the law through statutes. Others condemn his brutal actions towards the Welsh and the Scots. In the reign of Edward I, the Silver Penny was the largest denomination made for circulation. And regardless of where you stand on Edward I's reign, we think that adding a Silver Penny coined by one of England's most well-known monarchs to your collection will certainly enrich it. Here we offer an Edward I Silver Penny from the London Mint in Very Good condition with a certificate of authenticity!

George III, Halfpenny, 1806/7 Very Good

The coinage of King George III is rather strange, it is broken up into two sections, before the Currency Reform Act and after the Currency Reform Act. This Act was passed because of the shortage of coins, which the King because of his illness refused to allow to be made. So what did they do, after the Currency Reform Act of 1816 they struck Silver coins but did not bother to strike copper coins…! So the last design of King George III Halfpennies was issued in 1806 and 1807. It has the King’s bust with lauriate wreath on one side and a seated Britannia on the other side. These are the last George III Halfpences ever to be struck and they were struck in copper. In Very Good condition, which means that they have seen considerable wear
