S.5125 David II4 viewsGroat of David II of Scotland (1329-1371)
Mint: Edinburgh
Third (light) coinage
S. 5125

David II, son of Robert the Bruce, spent much of his reign either in captivity in England or in exile in France. Even so, he produced a fairly robust coinage. Unlike his father, whose coinage included only the penny and its fractions, David introduced the silver groat and halfgroat, as well as the gold noble

Second coinage
Type II
S. 5233

James II became king at a young age after his father's assassination. His first silver groat coinage copies his father's but a second coinage from 1451-1460 is of higher weight and different style.

The first 5 James' met untimely ends. James II was blown up by a cannon during a siege

S.6474 Henry VIII3 viewsGroat of Henry VIII, king of England and Ireland (1509-1547)
Mint: London
1st harp issue
S.6474
With Katherine Howard

Henry VIII produced his Irish coinage in London, for export to Ireland, where they circulated. The coinage was debased silver, and by the later issues there was very little silver at all. This early issue is 0.852 fineness.

Interestingly, several of Henry's famous wives are noted on his Irish coins- Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, and Katherine Howard, whom are noted with the letters A, I, and K respectively. This coin has an K to the right of the reverse harp, for Katherine.

cnut-1.jpg
S.993 Cnut10 viewsViking penny in the name of Cnut ca. 895-900
Moneyer: unknown
Mint: probably York
S.993
O: CR TE N XV
R: +CVNNETTI

The letters of the name Cnut are arranged on the cross in the way one would make the sign of the cross- up, down, left, right. What is unusual is that the patriarchal cross is upside down. Flipping the orientation would mean the legend would start at the bottom, which is equally unusual.

This Cnut is different from the more famous 11th century Viking invader who was crowned king of England. While much is known of the later Cnut, absolutely nothing is known of this ruler. His coinage is the only record left of his existence.

The reverse legend "Cunnetti" remains obscure in its meaning. Some have suggested "the kingdom of Cnut"

Second coinage
Class III
S. 5378
O: +IACOBVS 5 DEI GRA REX SCOTRV
R: OPPI DV E DINB VRGH

James V spent nearly his whole life as king, as his father died when he was less than 2 years old. James himself would not live a long life, dying at age 30 of an illness following the disastrous Battle of Solway Moss against England. His newborn daughter Mary born just before James's death was his only legitimate heir and would become queen.

This coin fits into the die chain series of the coins in the name of "Hoaud", though the legend is obviously nonsensical.

This irregular styca bears resemblance to the East Anglian "REX ANG" type of Aethelstan I, though without the central 'A". It could also be a degenerated form of Eanred.

Tentative issue

O: hЄnRIC+VII+DI+GRΛ+RЄX+AGI’+Z+F'+
R: POSVI DЄV Λ DIVTOR Є’ mЄV

The tentative groat, so called as the portrait of Henry is supposedly close to life, represents an important development in English coinage, the abandonment of the old medieval style facing bust in favor of more modern Renaissance-inspired portraiture.

Many sceats have imagery that is reminiscent of the style of Roman coins. Series V however is overtly copying Roman design, with a wolf nursing the twins Romulus and Remus.
