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

Edward I was a member of the House of Plantagenet who ascended to the English throne in 1279. For his towering 6'-2" height (above average for the era) Edward earned the nick name "Longshanks." During his reign, Edward addressed several issues with the Kingdom's coinage. To accommodate the need for larger and smaller denominations to accompany the penny, the groat, half penny and farthing were introduced. On the penny, such as this example, the traditional cross design was modified to extend close to the coin's edge. The image placement made it abundantly clear when the coin had been "clipped," serving as an effective deterrent to the practice.

  • This Silver Penny is a product of the Canterbury Mint.
  • The coin was hand struck.
  • The coin measures approximately 19 mm in diameter.

Silver Canterbury Penny Imagery

Obverse: The likeness of Edward I wearing a crown is located on the obverse. The surrounding inscription "EDW R ANGL DNS HYB" is an abbreviation for "Edward King of England Lord of Ireland."

Reverse: The center of the reverse design features a heraldic, Christian style long cross Moline, accompanied by four groupings of three pellets. The image is framed by a double beaded border containing the inscription "CIVITAS CANTOR," which translates from Latin as "City of Canterbury."
