Edward I penny

This is coin number eight from the group sent in by Jamie New. It’s a London penny of Edward I, which was struck during the New Coinage that commenced in 1279. Besides being better looking, pennies now tended to be struck to a higher standard than during the voided long cross coinage of Henry III.

Detectorists often consider pennies of Edward I to be problematic. This isn’t surprising, as most look very similar and the differences between types can at times be very small. Jamie’s find is an example of class IVa.


The coin has some circulation wear but overall it is well struck on a round flan. The obverse would grade Fine but the reverse is better. Pricewise, I’d say £25.
