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.
