Penny of Richard II

John Lashmar sent in this coin and asked for a full ID and a valuation. It’s a penny of Richard II, examples of which turn up less regularly than those of Edward III and Henry V.

This penny was struck at York and the quatrefoil in the centre of the reverse indicates it was struck for the profit of the Archbishop of York. The dies were made in London and are not are crude as those produced later by local die cutters.


The coin is weak in places and the obverse has been struck off centre but the coin would still grade Fine for the issue. In its present condition a collector should be willing to pay up to £60 for it.
