Class 7c penny of Henry III

This is the first of two coins sent in to be identified and valued by John Lashmar. It’s a voided short cross class 7c penny of Henry III, during whose reign the voided long cross coinage commenced in 1247.

The reverse of this penny has been struck well off centre, the end result being that not all the legend shows up. However, if the full legend was visible then it would read SIMVND ON SANT. Therefore, the moneyer responsible for the issue of this coin was Simund and the mint can only be Bury St. Edmunds. Examples of pennies struck at this mint are not rare but neither are thy as common as those made at London and Canterbury.


The obverse isn’t as far off centre as the reverse and overall the coin would grade about VF, so my price range would be £60 to £70.
