BRITISH COINS, TOKENS & CURRENCY

COINS OF KING ARTHUR? Restocked

British barbarous ancient Roman RadiatesThese small, ancient copper coins, called Barbarous Radiates, are found in hoards in England.  They are crude privately made, ancient copies of third century Roman coins.  They are not generally regarded as forgeries as they are smaller than the standard issues.  The designs are based on the Roman Antoninianus which features the emperor wearing a radiate crown.  Some sources attribute them to the Dark Ages or the Saxon period, a time when the legendary King Arthur is said to have ruled.  Other sources attribute them to the late third century, when Britain and Gaul were under the control of their own self-declared emperors. Either way they are fascinating ancient coins from ancient Britain.

RICHARD THE LIONHEART

Richard the Lionheart, 1169-1199AD silver DenierRichard the Lionheart was the King of England, Duke of Normandy, Aquitaine and Gascony and Lord of Cyprus. Though he was born in England he disliked the country and spent less than six months there throughout his entire reign.  He regarded it as little more than a source of tax revenue. Most of his reign was spent in France, on Crusade or as a prisoner of Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI who held him for ransom while he was attempting to return home from the Third Crusade.  Richard's knightly prowess made him a popular king and the subject of legends. During the Third Crusade he occupied Sicily and captured Cyprus with the aid of Levon of Armenia before arriving in the Holy Land in 1191. He sold Cyprus to the Knights Templar   In 1199 Richard died after being wounded while laying siege to a castle in an effort to get a hoard of gold that had been found by a peasant.  Richard’s coins from England are very scarce and pricy.  This Anglo-Gallic silver Denier of Richard the Lionheart is much more reasonable.  The coin has a simple design. One side has his name on it “RICA / DIUS” while the other has a cross and the name of the mint (Aquitaine or Poitou).  As is typical of coins of that era, it is crudely engraved and weakly struck.

MAJOR BRITISH WRONG PLANCHET ERRORS

Great Britain 2 Pence struck on 1 Pence blankThese British 2 Pence coins were struck on 1 Pence blanks! The coins are copper-plated steel and weigh 3.56 grams, which corresponds to the 1 Pence. The coins are slightly out of round and the edges are a bit irregular as is expected on a wrong planchet error. Most likely the 1 Pence blanks got stuck in some minting equipment or bins and did not shake loose until after production had been changed to 2 Pence.  The coins appear to have been struck between 1992 and about 2001.  As might be expected, each piece is different depending exactly how the dies hit the undersized planchet.   Most pieces have the date struck off the planchet.

New1838 SCOTTISH COMMUNION TOKEN

Monzie (Perthshire) Scotland communion token 1838Many churches in Scotland and England would hold Holy Communion only once a year or less. Only those deemed worthy were allowed to partake. Those worthy were given a special token, which had to be presented in order to take communion.   Being worthy was often associated with financial contributions.  This communion token dated 1838 was issued by the Established Church of Scotland in the small village of Monzie in Perthshire in central Scotland.  Today little remains of Monzie other than a castle, some Bed and Breakfasts and the church which no longer holds regular services.  The 29mm x 19mm pewter token has “MONZIE” on one side and the date on the other.  In 1843 the minister and a majority of the members of the Monzie Church resigned in order to form the Monzie Free Church, taking part in The Great Disruption.  The Free Church of Scotland broke away from the Church of Scotland because of their opposition to the power of local landowners having the right to appoint the ministers to a parish

2011 LUNDY COINS FEATURES PUFFINS 

Lundy 1 Puffin, 2011Lundy 6 Puffins, 4 Puffins, 2 Puffins, 1 Puffin and 1/2 Puffin
The coins of Lundy have been long been popular with collectors. Lundy is a small island off the coast of England, inhabited by about 30 residents as well as puffins and numerous other birds. It has been inhabited since Neolithic times by various groups including Vikings, the Knights Templar, a Sheriff who used the island to house convicts that he was supposed to deport to Virginia, and numerous pirates, including Barbary Pirates from North Africa. Today it is owned by the National Trust for the British people and is a popular destination for tourists. It is considered to be one of Britain’s greatest natural wonders. The island was purchased in 1924 by British merchant Martin Coles Harman, who proclaimed himself "king" of the island. He issued postage stamps, and in 1929 issued two coins, a bronze 1/2 Puffin and 1 Puffin, which were equivalent to the British 1/2 Penny and Penny. The coins had limited circulation on the island and were often brought home by tourists as a souvenir. The issue probably would have been forgotten if the British government had not brought Mr. Harman into court in 1930 for the "unauthorized minting of money". He was eventually given a nominal fine of 5 Pounds plus court costs, and the coins became an instant hit with collectors. In 1965 a second issue of the coins was made. The coins had the same designs but were struck in different metals and dated 1965. The British government wisely chose to ignore the coins. In 2011 a series of five Lundy coins was released. All the coins bear the portrait of Martin Coles Harman as it appeared on the earlier Lundy issues. Like the 1929 issues, the 1/2 Puffin portrays the head of a puffin on the reverse and the 1 Puffin portrays puffin standing on a rock. Both are struck in copper-plated zinc. The brass 2 Puffins pictures two puffins in flight. The brass 4 Puffins depicts four puffins flying around the Old Light House which was built in 1787. The 38mm copper-nickel-zinc 6 Puffins pictures six puffins flying over the Marisco Castle, which was built by Henry III. Like the original 1929 issues, the 2011 1/2, 1, 2 and 4 Puffins bear the edge inscription "Lundy Lights and Leads", which is a reference to the islands two lighthouses. They are attractive coins from a tiny but beautiful and historic island.
