A group of four silver coins. All are examples of the late medieval English silver penny and will be of the sterling standard, 92.5% fine metal. The two older coins are worn and possibly clipped, which makes it likely that they were in circulation alongside the two later coins, both from the last decade or so of Henry VI's reign (1422-60), a period when the official weight of the penny was 15 grains (0.9g). That the later coins are all from the York mint is typical of the fifteenth century. The group was probably deposited roughly in the period c. 1455 to 1470, when a new weight stan…

I have examined a group of 10 coins reported found at Winterborne St Martin. All are official silver coins of Queen Elizabeth I and will be of the sterling standard, 92.5% fine metal. The group consists of just two of the silver denominations then in currency, the sixpence and threepence, so clearly represents selected material. The latest clearly dated coin is from 1575, so it appears the group was deposited in the mid to late 1570s. Their details are as follows, listing them by denomination and date (the number at the end of each line is that on the original packet; the coin marked…

Date of discovery: November 2013 and October 2014 Circumstances of discovery: The coins were found separated by a distance of 3 meters, at a depth of 6 inches below the surface of a previously ploughed field. Early and later medieval pottery has been found in the same general area. The identical typology and condition of the coins suggests that they were lost or deposited together at the same time, and the action of ploughing may have contributed to their apparent separation in the ground. Description: The finds consist of two silver coins, both dating from the second half of t…
