1363-1369 Edward III Half Noble Treaty Period Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£2,100.00
Treaty period hammered gold Half Noble of King Edward III, struck in London. Obverse: portrait of Edward, holding shield and sword, standing in a ship at sea, the prow and stern extending beyond the beaded border that encloses the motif. Legend features saltire cross before Edward and reads: ‘x EDWARD xx DEI xx G xx REX xx ANGL xx D xx HYB x Z x AQ/T’. Reverse: decorative cross, terminating in ornate lis with an ‘E’ in the centre, crowns and lions in the angles, all within a treasure of arcs and a beaded circle. Legend: ‘+ DOMINE xx NE xx IN xx FVRORE xx TVO xx ARGVAS xx ME’. This example dates from the period of Edward III’s reign after the Treaty of Brétigny (1361) which ended the first phase of the Hundred Years War and endorsed substantial English territorial gains on the continent. In return, Edward gave up his claim to the French throne and this is reflected in the lack of any mention of France in the obverse legend. The Treaty only bought nine years respite with the conflict resuming in 1369. Weight: 3.68 grams. Approximate diameter: 26.8 millimetres. Grade: GVF - Good flan with minor crack at 3 o’clock, clear and strong details: Very Fine slightly better in areas. References: S 1506, N 1238.

What is the treaty period in Edward III coins?

The first phase of the Hundred Years War ended with the Treaty of Brétigny which was ratified in 1360 at banquet attended by English King, Edward III and his prisoner, King John II of France. Under the terms of the Treaty, Edward made massive territorial gains on the continent but was obliged to renounce his claims to the French throne. The change in title is reflected on Edwards’ coinage and this allows us to divide the King’s fourth and final coinage into four distinct periods: first, the pre-treaty period (1351-1361), then a transitional period (1361) followed by the treaty period (1361-1369) and the post-treaty period (1369-1377). In 1369, John’s son, King Charles V of France declared war again, the conflict rumbled on and Edward reverted back to using his French titles for the remainder of his reign.
