Why purchase this Silver 1279-1307 England Canterbury Edward I Treasure Penny?

Beloved for some aspects of his rule and hated for others, few monarchs in English history have been as consequential as King Edward I. He treated the Scots brutally and stole the property of Jews before expelling them from England. He also made Parliament a permanent fixture, though. Those looking for a connection to his reign would do well to pick up this silver penny, which was the largest coin issued for common usage during his reign.

  • This coin was 1 penny English legal tender.
  • This coin was struck during the reign of King Edward I between 1279 and 1307.
  • This penny was the largest coin struck for common usage during the time period.
  • This coin could be divided easily into quarters and halves thanks to the cross on the reverse.
  • This coin has been cleaned.
  • This piece earned a grade of Extremely Fine Details from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

Striking King Edward I Design

Obverse: King Edward I features at the center of the obverse. His portrait shows him facing the holder with a crown on his head. Along the rim is an inscription of his abbreviated name and title, "+ ?DW R' ANGL' DNS hyB" (Edward King of England Lord of Ireland).

Reverse: The main design feature of the reverse is a long cross moline. An inscription of the name of the mint at which the coin was struck spreads throughout the rim, and there are pellets in the angles of the cross.

Well Maintained XF Details Cleaned

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Extremely Fine Details. That means that the features of the design remain clear, but there is evidence of wear throughout both faces of the coin. NGC also noted that this piece was cleaned.
