The Medieval Silver Penny


The Medieval Silver Penny

Crusades, military conquest and extravagant living. These were the pursuits that preoccupied the life of the medieval King Edward I over 700 years ago.

Now you have the chance to own a genuine Silver Penny issued by this medieval monarch.

Edward I Silver Penny

This Silver Penny was issued during by King Edward I who reigned from 1272-1307. When Edward I came to the English throne he was commanding an army in the Holy Land. The epitome of a medieval King, he was famous for his feats in hunting, falconry and jousting. These silver pennies are examples of medieval commerce, surviving for over 700 years.

The long cross on the reverse of this coin was an attempt of preventing fraud and was introduced to prevent clipping of the coins.


These are coins that have survived 700 years, and considering the huge number of silver coins that have been melted for their precious metal over the years, it’s amazing that any have survived at all.
