David II, penny

Here is another hammered silver coin from Michael Young’s collection. Michael seems to be very good at locating Scottish coins of several periods.

The latest find is a penny of David II. It was struck at the mint in Edinburgh and there is a star on the sceptre in front of the king’s head. Therefore, the coin is an example of number 5130 in Coins of Scotland Ireland and the Islands.

Valuation

The obverse would grade about VF but the edge is bent over where the king’s name is at the start of the legend. The reverse is weak in places and would grade no better than Fine. Without the bend it would have been worth more but in its present condition I’d say £60 – £80.
