1135-1154 King Stephen Penny Edred on Warwick Rare

1135-1154 King Stephan Penny Edred on Warwick Rare Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£895.00
A very rare and hard to find full flan hammered silver penny of King Stephen, struck at the mint of Warwick by the moneyer Edred. Stephen’s reign began when he seized the throne on the death of his uncle in 1135 and was coloured by civil war with his cousin, Empress Matilda: a conflict that came to be known as The Anarchy. Matilda’s son succeeded Stephen on his death in 1154. This coin bears a good obverse portrait of the king, crowned and facing right. He holds a sceptre in his right hand and appears to be wearing a beaded necklace. The reverse - known as the Watford type - shows a cross moline with fleurs in the angles though on this example they look a little more like crosses. The legends on coins of Stephen of Blois are often weakly struck. In this case, the moneyer and mint have been identified by a third party expert with reference to known legends and die match comparisons. A fascinating piece. Spink 1278.
