Irish halfpenny of Edward I

This is the second coin that came in this week from Damon Ward. It’s a hammered silver halfpenny of Edward I but it is Irish rather than English. The legend on the reverse, CIVI TAS DVBL INIE, identifies the mint as Dublin.

On the obverse, set within and inverted triangle, is the crowned head of King Edward I. The legend starts with EDW, before which is a pellet and the letter E is Roman (rather than Gothic) in style. On both sides of the coin the E and C are open so this halfpenny is an example of type Ic, which is number 6252 in Coins of Scotland, Ireland and the Islands.

Valuation

The obverse would grade about Fine, the reverse Fine and Ic is a scarce type. In its present condition my price range this Irish halfpenny would be £50 – £60.
