Hi,

I have been able to research (to the best of my ability) that the coin is dated 1422-1430 King Henry - I believe it to be one penny. I would like to show it here in a bid to learn more about it and identify it more accurately...

Any info would be very much appreciated :)

I have just recently started to collect these so I'm still learning about all the different types. I believe this is Henry VI silver penny stuck at the London mint.

There are others here that know much more than I do, I sure they will add more information.

It is indeed a Henry VI London (CIVITAS LONDON on the reverse) penny! The annulets on the reverse and pierced cross mintmark (just above the king's bust) tell us that this is a so-called Annulet issue. This issue is dated, as you already mentioned in your post, to 1422 - 1430 (used to be 1427, but recent evidence pushed back this date slightly). A nice specimen, even with the tiny piece of the flan missing. What else would you like to know?

I just so happen to have a half penny from the same issue, but this one was issued at the Calais mint rather than London. Notice the annulets besides the king's head as well? That is typical for Annnulet-issue coins from the Calais mint; London does not have these.

@EV, first welcome to CCF. Second, very nice coin you have there. I would attribute it as Spink #1844.

Hey guys

Thanks for the replies...very interesting indeed!!

@AnYangMan
I'm quite impressed with my findings (I'm a complete novice in the world of coins ) it would seem I was pretty accurate in identifying this piece, based on what you have confirmed for me...many thanks!

@Spence
Thanks for your advice. However, my knowledge is virtually zero when it comes to coin collecting...I wonder if you could kindly elaborate on the following comment you made

[quote] Second, very nice coin you have there. I would attribute it as Spink #1844.[quote]

I have no idea what Spink #1844 means - is it to do with value? Is there much value to my coin?

Thanks again

Spink 1844 is the reference given in "Coins of England & the UK" published by Spink.
Spink is the acknowledged main reference book for UK coins.
They value it as Fine £30 Very fine £110.
The bite mark out of your coin distracts an otherwise reasonable flan.
Your coin would probably retail at approx £20 and no value to a dealer but you could shift it on ebay.
A nice keep sake and fantastic history,I would hold on to it.

@EV, as described by @peter1234, Spink #1844 is the attribution. You had asked about identifying this coin and with that description, other coin collectors will know which coin you have. If this were my coin, I would put it in a 2x2 and write all of the info that I have about it (including the attribution).

@essex, that's quite a handsome coin, notwithstanding the missing chunk to the edge.
Strong portrait is what I like, and your coin has it!
