Edward I was a tall man for his era, at 6'2" (1.88 m), hence the nickname "Longshanks." Henry III ceded the duchy of Aquitaine to Edward in 1252. He ruled as King of England and Lord of Ireland, 20 Nov 1272 - 7 Jul 1307. He was ruthless in pursuing his aims and crushing those who opposed him. Edward fought in the 9th crusade before he became king. He conquered large parts of Wales and he built a series of castles and towns in the countryside and settled them with English people. He attempted to do the same to Scotland but after Philip IV of France (a Scottish ally) confiscated the Duchy of Gascony, Edward went to war with France. He recovered his duchy but the conflict relieved military pressure against Scotland. When the Edward I died, his son was left with a war with Scotland, financial and political problems.

Great Britain, Victoria, 20 June 1837 - 22 January 1901

|United| |Kingdom|, |Great| |Britain,| |Victoria,| |20| |June| |1837| |-| |22| |January| |1901
||crown|
Queen Victoria inherited the throne at 18, after her father's three elder brothers had all died leaving no legitimate, surviving male children. The UK was already a constitutional monarchy, in which the sovereign held relatively little direct political power. Privately, Victoria attempted to influence government policy and ministerial appointments. Publicly, she became a national icon and was identified with strict standards of personal morality. Her reign of 63 years and seven months is known as the Victorian era. The inscription "Decus et Tutamen" can be translated to mean both "glory and defense" or "an ornament and a safeguard." The inscription was intended to both enhance the design of the coin and protected it against clipping.

Silver crown, SCBC 3882, SCWC KM 741, gF, toned, light scratches and marks; DECUS ET PUTAMEN ANNO REGNI VIII ✿ (glory and defense in the 8th regnal year) on edge, weight 27.981 g, maximum diameter 38.0 mm, die axis 180o, London mint, 1845; obverse VICTORIA DEI GRATIA (Victoria, by the grace of God), young head left, two plain bands around hair, 1845 below; reverse BRITANNIARUM REGINA FID : DEF : (Queen of the British Territories, Defender of the Faith), crowned quartered shield of Royal Arms (England 1st and 4th quarters, Scotland 2nd, and Ireland 3rd), surrounded by laurel wreath open at the top and tied with a ribbon at the bottom; united rose, thistle, and shamrock below; $250.00 SALE PRICE $225.00
