English Hammered and Early Milled Coins
Anglo-Gallic Aquitaine, Edward I Longshanks, 20 November 1272 7 July 1307, As Duke and Son of Henry III

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.

Anglo-Gallic, Henry VI de Lancastre, King of France and England, 1422 - 1453

In 1422, the year old king of England inherited the French throne from his mad grandfather Charles VI of France; the iconography of this type represents the unification of the two nations. Ten years later Joan of Arc would make an appearance which would eventually loosen the English grip on France until by 1436 only Normandy and part of Maine remained in Henry's control.

Great Britain, George IV, 29 January 1820 - 26 June 1830

|United| |Kingdom|, |Great| |Britain,| |George| |IV,| |29| |January| |1820| |-| |26| |June| |1830||farthing|
From 1811 until his accession, George IV served as regent during his father's mental illness. He forbade his wife from attending his coronation and unsuccessfully attempted to divorce her, which brought the contempt of the people. For most of George's regency and reign, Prime Minister Lord Liverpool controlled the government with little help from George. George's extravagant lifestyle and wasteful spending angered taxpayers at a time when Britain was fighting the Napoleonic Wars. He did not provide leadership in a time of crisis, nor did he act as a role model for his people. Liverpool led Britain's ultimate victory, negotiated the peace settlement, and attempted to deal with the social and economic malaise that followed. George IV was succeeded by his younger brother William.
