Penny of Henry III

This is another coin from the collection built up by John Lashmar. I was asked to provide a full ID and a valuation. The coin is a voided long cross penny of Henry III, which isn’t rare but at least it’s not a London or Canterbury issue.

On the reverse the legend reads RAN DVL FON SED, so Randulf is the moneyer and Bury St. Edmunds the mint. This penny has various characteristics that mark it out as a coin of class 5b2.

Valuation

The centre of the obverse is a bit weak but the coin is otherwise in better than Fine condition, so to a collector it should be worth around £30.
