Group 7

Edward I Cl 7a Penny London.jpg

Type 7a (between 1292 and 1296) - Spink 1403, North 1032

The crown on coins of type 7a has very widely spread side-fleurs, and is of the same type as used for coins of groups 5 and 6. The coins of Canterbury and London are easily recognised by a rose on the kingís breast, and double-barred Nís in the legends. The coins of Bury, however, lack these features, and are attributed on the basis of having the same bust, with almond-shaped eyes. The letter S is sometimes of the composite type, last used in group 3.

Kingís name: EDW
Mints: Bury, Canterbury, London

Edward I Cl 7b Penny London.jpg

Type 7b (between 1292 and 1296) - Spink 1404, North 1033

Type 7b coins have a new crown with a tall central fleur, a hooked left ornament, and side-fleurs that are much less spread than those of 7a. The hair is also longer and bushier, with the individual strands more distinct. London coins alone have a rose on the breast, and double-barred Nís. Those of Canterbury and Durham are attributed on the basis of having the same crown and bust. The letter S is sometimes of the composite type, as in 7a.

Kingís name: EDW
Mints: Canterbury, Durham, London
