Why add this circa 1035-87 England William the Conqueror Silver Normandy Denier struck at the Rouen Mint to your collection?
William I became the first Norman king of England in 1066, establishing the English House of Normandy, which endured until 1135. William had supposedly been named the heir to the throne in 1052 by Edward the Confessor. At the time of Edward's death in 1066, William's claim to the throne was met with resistance, resulting in the Norman conquest of England, an invasion led by William, then Duke of Normandy. This approximately 18 mm diameter Silver Denier was struck at the Rouen Mint in Normandy, France.
Impressive Silver Denier design
A framed cross pattée is featured on the obverse, surrounded by the inscription "NORMANNA." The cross pattee is a style of Christian cross, often struck on coins of the medieval period, with narrow arms at the center that flare out to a wide straight edge.
On the reverse, two towers frame the entrance to a cathedral. The facade features a saltire style cross ("X" shape), with a triangle pediment above.
