London farthing of Edward I

This very small hammered silver coin was unearthed on the 12th of February. The finder, Martin Depear, asked for an ID and a valuation.

Martin’s find is a class 3de London farthing of Edward I. Go back 50 years and silver farthing of any type or reign were rare. Today the situation if very different, for over that 50 years period a very high number of farthings have turned up as detecting finds. This, of course, has created a downward shift in prices, which might disappoint detectorists but it has made farthings far easier to acquire by collectors.    


The coin featured here would grade Fair to Fine and in the present market it should be worth £12-15.
