Edward III Series F Penny - London



Edward III Series F Penny - Mint London
Obv: Crowned bust facing
Mint mark Crown EDWARDVSoREXoANGLIo
Unbarred Roman N's and Annulet stops
Rev: Long cross quartered by trefoil of pellets
CIVI/ TAS/ LON/ DON - unbarred Roman N's
Series F is the only mintage of Edward III
where the mintmark is a Crown rather than a Cross.
The issue was only a very short one running from January to March or April 1356
The unbarred Roman N lettering and the absence of Annulets between the pellets on the reverse is typical of Series F.
This short lived series with the telltale Crown mintmark proves to have a pivotal role in determining the arrangement of the Pre-Treaty coinage. Mules appear frequently in the preceding & succeeding series E & G with true coins being fairly scarce.
