Silver penny of Edward I which has been gilded and made into a brooch. A Class 1c penny of 1279. The reverse is gilded and the obverse has a hook piece soldered to it (following the line if the long cross on the reverse). The hook is made from a trapezoidal sectioned strip of silver. At one end it is bent over to form a loop (possibly for attachment) and at the other it is bent backwards to form a hook. The end of the hook tapers slightly before a break at the end. The coin is in good condition and was probably converted to a dress accessory quite soon after it was minted. Potential t…

Incomplete silver penny of Edward I, Mint London, Class 2b January - May 1280. The penny has been reused to form a brooch with a small silver loop being soldered to the obverse face. It has been applied in such a way that the cross on the reverse is vertical. It is possible that the front face has also been gilt (although this may be a result of the burial conditions). The lower part of thE coin has been lost - probably as a result of movement in the soil.

Fragment of a silver penny of Æthelred II (978-1016), probably of 'Last Small Cross' type (North 777), minted by Eatstan at Exeter. It appears to be a reverse die link with a coin in the Copenhagen collections (SCBI 7 no.171; EMC 1007.1071). The remains of an iron strip are attached to the obverse and the reverse is gilded, demonstrating that this coin was once modified to create an artefact, most likely a brooch but possibly a mount, with the reverse of the coin as the front face of the object. Obverse: [ ]RÆD REX A[ ] Reverse: EATSTA[ ]EC Date: Coin c.1009-17. Dimens…

A penny of Eadgar, AD959-975 (EMC 2014.0296); parts of the circumference are missing in two areas. The obverse has been gilded. The edge of a small circular hole survives in the edges of one of the breaks which, together with the gilding, suggests that the coin was converted into a brooch, the hole being one of two used to attach a pin. The coin is of a previously unrecorded type. In view of the missing portions the best guess is that the obverse would originally have read EA / DG / AR / REX (in a design reminiscent of the Luda penny of Alfred); it would fit in with other revivals of …
