1313-1322 Gaucher V de Châtillon Easterling Hammered Penny Yves

1313-1322 Gaucher V de Châtillon Easterling Hammered Penny Yves Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£68.00
A fascinating silver imitation Edward I Penny, struck under the auspices of Gaucher V de Châtillon, Lord of Châtillon, Count of Porcien, circa 1313-1322 at the mint of Yves. Known as ‘Easterlings’ or ‘sterlings’, these intriguing continental copies of English pennies became common in north-west Europe, trading on the reputation of the original silver coins. The obverse features a crowned forward-facing bust, similar to English Edwardian issues. The reverse shows a long cross with three pellets in the quarters. It’s the legends which immediately identify this piece as a French imitation, associated with the wealthy Constable of France.
