William II Silver Penny 1087-1100AD
20mm, 1.42g

Commonly known as William Rufus (possibly due to having red hair in childhood, though not confirmed) was the third son of William the Conqueror and inherited the throne of England, his older brother Robert having inherited Normandy. William II's coinage has been generally accepted to include five types issued in the name of 'William' with uncertainty over when the PAXS type was introduced. He was killed while hunting in the New Forest, but whether an accident or murder is a matter of debate.

An example of the voided cross type struck on good metal.

This coin comes with an old dealers ticket.
