COIN

Unique ID: SF-E9A6F6

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A worn and clipped silver hammered penny of Edward IV's first or second reign, dating c. 1464-1476. Archiepiscopal issue under Archbishop George Neville, 'G' and key by neck, mint of York. An irregular triangular piercing is visible on the king's neck.

Notes:

The coin has been pierced, indicating a secondary function which would normally indicate that it should be considered as potential Treasure (under Treasure Act 1996). However, coins dating after AD1180 with similar piercings are also known in hoards of currency, suggesting that such objects could re-enter circulation as coins. It therefore cannot be said with confidence whether this particular object was regarded as a coin or as another type of object at the time that the coin was deposited.
