Edward I, Canterbury Penny Fine

This is one of the most fantastic Treasure Trove Hoards we have ever bought. On the 10th of May 1877 at Montrave, Fifeshire, Scotland a hoard of King Edward I Silver Pennies were found. The coins are about 700 years old and the treasure was found 141 years ago! They were declared and sent to the British Museum for cataloguing. This Treasure hoard was found on the land belonging to Mr. Allan Gilmour of Lundin and Montrave. Now for the first time in 141 years, collectors have the chance to own a specimen from this incredible hoard. We are offering these Treasure Coins with certificate at the same price I would charge for a normal Edward I Penny. But we do retain the right to raise the prices, as supplies run short. British Treasure over 700 years old and untouched for 141 years. Supplies are limited.
