  • William I, 1066-87. Hammered Penny. PAXS Type. Bristol Mint, Moneyer Colblac.

     

    An attractive and well struck example with a nice tone and good eye catching portrait. The legend mostly complete both sides, with Mint and Moneyer clear. Note what appears to be a faint hairline on reverse, however not visible at all from the obverse, so likely due to the strong strike on the metal.

     

    William Duke of Normandy, decided to invade England as he believed and claimed that he was promised the throne previously by Edward the Confessor and Harold.

    Victory against King Harold at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 saw William the Conqueror placed firmly in the history books. The Bayeux Tapestry which we enjoy today along with castles in England, including the Tower of London were all achievements noted to William.
