A completely Medieval silver penny of Edward I (1272-1307 AD). Mint: Canterbury. Possibly North Class 4b (cf. No. 1024), with bushy hair and smiling face, dating from 1282-9. However the poor condition of the legends makes a positive identification aided by lettering type difficult.

Obverse: Crowned ruler facing, probably trifoliate side-fleurs.

Obverse legend: EDWR ANGL DNS hYB

Reverse: Long cross pattee with three pellets in each quadrant.

Reverse legend: CIVI [TAS] CA(N) (T)OR
