Richard I, penny

Roger Paul said this coin is his first decent find of the new season. Lot of detectorists are now out and about again, which means that more and more finds will be coming to the surface.

Roger’s find is a voided short cross penny of Richard I. From the general style of the head on the obverse I would say it is an example of class III, which is much scarcer than class IV.

On the reverse the legend reads +VLARD ON CANT, so Ulard is the moneyer and Canterbury the mint.

Valuation

The obverse has been struck well off centre but the coin is otherwise in good Fine condition. The grade of preservation is higher than usual for Richard I and the class is scarcer than most others I see of this king To a keen collector of voided short cross coins this find shouldn’t be worth any less than £100.
