Henry III, Penny (Canterbury) Silver Very Fine

In the reign of King Henry III, the only coin that was made was a Silver Penny. Some of these coins were cut in half or in quarters to make Halfpennies and Farthings, but the Silver Penny was the only coin actually issued. The newest of these coins is almost 750 years old. You have the crowned facing portrait of Henry on the obverse and a cross on the reverse. These Silver Pennies we have on offer were struck in the city of Canterbury, which we think makes them even more interesting. Each coin was struck by hand one at a time. The coins on offer are in Very Fine condition, which is quite a high grade for this English Silver coin. Supplies are limited and we know you will love owning this 750-year-old Silver Penny.

Edward I, Treasure (Durham) Penny 1272-1307 Fine

The hoard of Edward I Silver Pennies was found at Montrave, Fifeshire in Scotland in 1877. It was found on the land belonging to Mr Allan Gilmour of Lundin and Montrave. It was fully declared and sat in the British Museum for 40-50 years while they examined it. We recently bought a large part of the hoard from one of the heirs of the man who found them in 1877. We are offering you the chance on one of the Rarer Mints, Durham. If you come from Durham, so much the better. Each coin comes with a certificate, certifying that your coin comes from the Montrave Treasure Hoard and from the town of Durham.
