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.

King John was the youngest son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, he was King of England from 1199 until his death in 1216, he was also granted Lordship of Ireland, and coins were struck in his name for use in Ireland. His reign was remembered more for the loss of large parts of France and quarrels with the Church and English Barons resulting in the signing of Magna Carta on 15 June 1215. The aim was to make peace between the King and the rebel barons and to ensure the protection of church rites. Here we offer these important silver pennies from his reign in Fine, a very collectible coin with detailed portraits. Very limited availability.
