Groats

 

WMH-6427:  Edward I Medieval Silver GROAT.  Struck very early on during the New Coinage which commenced 1279.  Bust with larger oval face with bushy hair, thick curved drapery with rosette in centre, quatrefoil in three lines surrounding bust, flowers in spandrels, obv. triple pellet stops, mm. cross pattée, rev. with pellet barred N and colon stops :DNS HIBN' EDVX AQVT', 4.99g, (S.1379E, N.1006, Fox 4). Never gilt or mounted , slight edge chip and only about fair but very rare.  Ruding says that during the reign of Edward I, William de Turnmire, of Marseilles was appointed to the office of Master of the Mint in England, under an agreement dated Thursday the Feast of the Conception of the Blessed Mary, in the eighth year of Edward's reign (i.e. 8 December 1279). Amongst other things it was agreed that Master William should make great Sterling ('grossus sterlingus') to the value of four lesser sterling.  This new denomination proved unpopular with an almost complete recall sometime after the date of the class 3g coinage.  Ex Beauchamp Coins, ex AMR, ex Yorkshire collection.  Sold with these tickets.  An excessively rare coin (Jon Mann, the acclaimed numismatic researcher, ex of Spink, stated on his ticket that there were only 59 recorded groats for Edward 1st by Dr Martin Allen) with the bulk being either gilt or mounted or both.  This coin is neither…and neither does it come with the usual £10,000 price tag!  £2,850
