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.
