ceolwulf-i-werbald-1a.jpg
S.927 Ceolwulf I (Werbald)12 viewsPenny of Ceolwulf I, king of Mercia 821-823
Moneyer: Werbald
Mint: East Anglia, possible Ipswich
S. 927
N. 388
O: +CEOVVLF REX m
R: PER BALD mONE

Ceolwulf I, brother of Coenwulf, succeeded to the throne of Mercia, Kent, and East Anglia after his brother's death. He did produce coins in London, Canterbury, and East Anglia. Despite multiple mints, but due to the brevity of his reign, coins of Ceolwulf are very rare.

This moneyer, Werbald, also coined for Ceolwulf's successors Beornwulf and Ludica

john-halfpenny-2a.jpg
S.6203 John2 viewsPenny or halfpenny of John, lord of Ireland, or of John de Courcy, lord of Ulster
S.6203
Mint: unknown (probably Dublin)
Moneyer: Raul Blunt
O: +IOA[NNES], bust right
R: [+RA]VL BLVNT

This coin is generally considered the first Anglo-Irish coin produced in Ireland. It dates from the end of the 12th century, though it is not quite clear who issued it. The name on the obverse is just "John". The figure is not crowned. It could be King John (not yet a king) who was declared Lord of Ireland in 1177 by his father Henry II. Or the John could be John de Courcy who was in control of Ulster at the same time. This coin dates from around 1179. Both Lord John and John de Courcy would both issue coinage.

The "profile right" coinage is exceedingly rare. Besides this coin, there are some 12-15 other specimens. Three moneyers are known- Raul Blunt, Elis of Dublin, and Roger Tan. Given the reference to Dublin by the moneyer Elis, the coins are thought to be produced there and thus attributed to Lord John, future King John. However, Derek Allen has argued in the past that the coins all depict moneyers with last names and that does not clearly indicate where the coins were made. John de Courcy minted at Carrickfergus and Downpatrick and the lettering of these coins is similar to de Courcy's coinage. So the jury remains out on which John.

Moneyer: Nicole

S. 1339
O: +hENRI:RE
R: +NICOLE ON GIPE

Cross and crosslets type penny, also known as 'Tealby' for a large hoard of them that was found in Tealby, Lincolnshire, in the early 19th century. These first issues of Henry II are often of wretched quality, and the legends can be very difficult to read.

S.1142 Eadward the Martyr (Æthelstan)8 viewsPenny of Eadward "the Martyr", king of England 975-978
Moneyer: Æthelstan
Mint: Canterbury
S. 1142
O: EADPEA REX ANGLOR
R: ÆÐESTAN M-O CÆNT

The unfortunate Eadward, with the sobriquet "the Martyr", obviously wasn't destined for long life. Just three years into his reign, the hapless Eadward was killed, probably by his step mother Ælfthryth, mother of his half-brother Æthelred (II).

This particular coin appears to have been from an altered die of Eadgar, with the last three letters of the presumably still serviceable die altered.

Moneyer: Æthelhelm
Mint: Unknown (probably Ipswich)
S. 951
O: AEDELS+AN REX
R: +AEÐELHM MO

Much like other early East Anglian kings, Æthelstan is essentially unknown from the historical record, but left a numismatic record. His coins are scarce, but prolific enough that he must have been king for a reasonable length of time. During his reign the Mercian dominance over East Anglia was weak enough that the East Anglian rulers could coin in their own name. This would last until the East Anglian takeover by the Vikings in 869.

Edward III, the great medieval warrior-king, hero of battle of Crecy, was a major figure that transformed England into a contemporary English states. He lived long enough to see some of it unravel during his lifetime, but his legacy has remained one of England's greatest figures.

Coins of Edward VIII were not produced in the UK other than a few patterns, which are very rare. His early abdication made coinage unnecessary. Coins were produced in his name for some of the territories, including British West Africa (Nigeria and Ghana).
