2012 T138 Ashbourne area, Derbyshire I have examined a group of coins found in the Ashbourne area, Derbyshire, received at the British Museum in two batches: the following report was amended after receipt of the later material. All but one are official English coins of the Long Cross type, issued between 1247 and 1279. The Long Cross coinage was issued in the name of King Henry III (although it continued to be produce for a few years into the reign of Edward I). Modern numismatists have broken the coinage up into a series of classes, which allow coins to be dated more precisely wit…

I have examined a group of 11 coins and fragments of coins the coins are listed in detail in the accompanying catalogue. All the coins are silver and all but two fragments are official coins of the medieval kings of England, and will thus be of the traditional sterling standard, i.e. 92.5 fine metal. The remaining two fragments appear to come from one coin, a sterling imitation of English pennies issued by the French lord Gaucher de Chatillon. These will have a silver fineness of c. 80%. Although the group is relatively small, it represents most of the silver denominations of late m…

Two groats. Both coins are groats from early in the reign of Henry VI, one an annulet issue (1422-7) and the other a rosette-mascle issue (1427-30). Both were struck at Calais as was so much of Henry's early coinage. The two coins are in relatively crisp condition although the earlier coin has been clipped. Although groats of Henry VI are found, the close date of these two, their relatively good condition and the fact they were found close together makes it likely that they went into the ground together. The close date range of these two coins, together with their recovery from a ve…

I have examined 17 coins reported found at Duffield, Derbyshire. All are whole or damaged silver pennies, the damage almost certainly having occurred while in the ground. There are 15 pennies of the English Long Cross coinage and 2 of the equivalent Scottish Long Cross and Stars coinage, which also circulated in England. The silver content of both of these issues was over 90% fine metal. The details of the coins are as follows (coins marked with an asterisk are bent and fragmentary).

The find comprises a silver medieval penny folded in half and within the folded coin is another penny broken into two pieces. The legibility of the exterior penny is poor but enough is visible to identify it as a Cross-and-Crosslets penny of Henry II dated between 1158 and 1180. Coins of this period rarely survived in circulation into the following Short Cross period (from 1180) and this find was thus overwhelmingly likely to have been deposited within this period. The interior coin has been broken along the line of the reverse cross suggesting it was deliberately divided to create …

I have examined a group of coins found at Tyringham with Filgrave, Buckinghamshire. All are official silver coins of the kings of England of the 13th and 14th centuries and will thus be of the sterling standard, over 90% fine metal. All but one of the coins is of the Long Cross coinage, in production and currency 1247-1278. The remaining coin is a penny of Edward II, from the early 14th century. The Long Cross coins are mostly cut fractions, with just one full penny but 16 cut halfpennies and 3 cut farthings. (The penny was the only actual coin produced at this time and it was phy…

I have examined a group of 29 coins reported found at Farnham, Essex (two of these were submitted after this report was originally written). All are official silver issues of later medieval kings of England and will therefore have a fineness of the traditional sterling standard, about 92% fine metal. Most of the coins (21) are the highest value silver coin of the period, the groat of fourpence; there are also 2 half-groats and 6 pennies. Their face value, therefore, was 8 shillings, a sum with a purchasing power of probably getting on for £100 in modern terms. The period covered by t…

This is a coin from a group of 4 silver pennies of the Short Cross coinage, a type used for about 80 years though 4 reigns. Their details allow them to be dated more precisely, as set out above. As official English pennies they will have a silver standard of over 90% fine metal. They would have been in currency together in the years around 1210 and it is likely that they represent a single deposit. In the 13th century cut halfs and quarters of Short Cross pennies usually outnumber full pennies in areas of individual coin losses, and a collection of full pennies alone is more likely to…

2011 T225 I have examined a group of coins reported found in Worcestershire. All the coins are silver and are from the Long Cross coinage of King Henry III, issued 1247-1279, with one related coin of Henry's similar Irish coinage, which also circulated in England. Some of the coins are whole pennies (the only coin then being produced); some are deliberately cut fractions (halfpennies or farthings) and some are broken fragments. There are nine whole or largely complete pennies, five cut halfpennies, 2 probable cut farthings and two uncertain fragments. A more detailed list accompanie…

Nine of them are official silver pennies of the kings of England and will therefore be of the traditional sterling standard, over 90% fine metal.
