Why add this 1279-1307 Edward I Silver Penny to your collection?

Edward I of the House of Plantagenet, was the King of England form 1279 until 1307. During his reign, a new style of the "long cross" penny was introduced. With the new design, the cross extended to the edge of the coin as a deterrent to the practice of "clipping," the debasement of coinage by removal of a small portion of its edge. The long cross also allowed for easy change: cut in half it was valued at a half penny, while a quarter of the coin was valued as a farthing.

  • This Silver Penny was hand struck during the reign of Edward I, 1279-1307.
  • The coin is a product of The Royal Mint, which was established in 886 AD.
  • The hand struck coin features a diameter measurement of approximately 19 mm.

Design of Edward I's Silver Penny

Obverse: The obverse features a forward facing crowned portrait of Edward I. The image is encircled by the inscription "EDW R ANGL DNS HYB," which is an abbreviation for "Edward King of England Lord of Ireland."

Reverse: On the reverse, a Latin inscription which names the issuing city surrounds the depiction of a long cross with slightly flared arms, a heraldic style known as a cross Moline, with three circular pellets located between each arm of the cross.

Graded Very Fine 20

This 1279-1307 Edward I Silver Penny has been authenticated and awarded the grade of Very Fine (VF20) by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
