Irish penny of Henry III

This is another coin unearthed from pasture by Leon Boulton. The first was Scottish but this one is Irish.

The coin is a penny of Henry III, struck during a period when voided long cross pennies circulated in England. On the obverse is the head of King Henry, set within a triangle. The obverse die is of course workmanship, so this con will belong to class IIa.

On the reverse the legend reads RIC ARD OND IVE so Ricard is the moneyer and Dublin the mint. In Coins of Scotland, Ireland and the Islands pennies of this type are listed as number 6240.


Leon’s find is weak in places but good enough to grade about VF for the issue. My price range would be £90 to £100.
