House of Lancaster AD 1399-1461

Medieval House of Lancaster coins for sale.

From AD 1399, The House of Lancaster, under Henry IV reduced the standard weights for the coinage, the system remaining unchanged into the reign of
Henry V.
During Henry V’s reign it is noteworthy that ‘privy’ marks (to identify mints and control the production and origin of coins) were introduced.
Gold supply however dramatically reduced during Henry VI’s first reign, reflected in its rarity; the Calais mint initially struck much coinage during this period but was closed in AD 1440.
