Featured Item of the Month
Edward I Treasure, Silver Penny (1272-1307)
£69.50 (CEA2910)

Diameter: 17-18 mm approx.

Edward I, also known as Edward Longshanks reigned from 1272 to 1307. Historians have conflicting opinions on his reign, many credit the Monarch for restoring royal authority after the reign of Henry III, establishing Parliament as a permanent institution, and reforming the law through statutes. Others condemn his brutal actions towards the Welsh and the Scots, as well as for issuing the Edict of Expulsion decree, which expelled Jews from the Kingdom of England.   

In the reign of Edward I, the Silver Penny was the largest denomination made for circulation. And regardless of where you stand on Edward I's reign, we think that adding a Silver Penny coined by one of England's most well-known monarchs to your collection will certainly enrich it.

Victoria Sixpence 1887 Choice Unc
£49.50 each (U6D87U)

Diameter: 19 mm approx.

For the celebration of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887, the Monarch allowed the design of the coinage to be changed for the first time in 50 years. The old Sixpence had a shield on the reverse and crooks were gold plating them and passing them off as Half Sovereigns. To prevent the forgery, they changed the reverse and added a value within the wreath.
