Group 15

Edward II Cl 15a Penny Canterbury.jpg

Type 15a (1319 - 1319/20) - Spink 1461, North 1066

Coins of type 15a are identifiable by a combination of the group 15 crown (realistic widely splayed side-fleurs and poorly defined ornaments, both of which are inclined to the left) and a large face with pointed chin and enigmatic smile, as used on type 14. When worn, the type is easily confused with 15c, but can be distinguished by the letter E, which is angle-backed.

Edward II Cl 15b Penny London.jpg

Type 15b (1319/20 - 1321) - Spink 1462, North 1067

Coins of type 15c are identifiable by a combination of the group 15 crown (realistic widely splayed side-fleurs and poorly defined ornaments, both of which are inclined to the left) and the face, which although similar to that of 15a, is much smaller.

Edward II Cl 15c Penny London.jpg

Type 15c (1321 - 1327/28) - Spink 1463, North 1068

Coins of type 15c are identifiable by a combination of the group 15 crown (realistic widely splayed side-fleurs and poorly defined ornaments, both of which are inclined to the left) and a large face, which is similar to that of 15a, but lacks the enigmatic smile. When worn, the two types are easily confused, but the distinctive letter E of type 15c is much larger and doesn’t have an angled back.

Edward II Cl 15d Penny London.jpg

Type 15d (1327/28 - 1335) - Spink 1526-34, North 1095-99

Coins of type 15d are identifiable by a combination of the group 15 crown (realistic widely splayed side-fleurs and poorly defined ornaments, both of which are inclined to the left), the face, which is similar to that of 15c, and the use of a smaller round-backed E. Most coins of 15d also have Lombardic N’s in both the obverse and reverse legends, although the Roman form is occasionally used on one side. The type can be subdivided into 15d1 and 15d2, the second variety having a pellet in the centre of the obverse initial cross, and three additional pellets in one angle of the reverse.
