Irish penny of Edward IV

This Irish hammered silver penny of Edward IV had been identified by the finder, Paul Tongue, as number 6396 in Coins of Scotland, Ireland and the Islands.

It’s another example of the suns and roses type, specimens of which have appeared a number of times on this website, which proves that this type turns up quite regularly as a detecting find. This specimen has an obverse of Burns’ type S-4, which means it is still quite rare and this could be said to be a plus point.


The obverse would grade about Fine but none of the legend is visible. On the reverse the only part of the legend that can be seen reads TASD V, so the mint is Dublin; the reverse is otherwise off centre and would grade only Fair. In its present condition my price range on this coin would be no higher than £30 to £40.
