Henry I Silver Penny 1100-1135AD Type 13 Bath mint (unique)
Henry I Silver Penny 1100-1135AD Type 13 Bath mint, unique.
The Early Medieval Coinage Database lists no coins of Henry I type XIII for Bath. There is one type IX and three type IXV pennies listed suggesting that the mint output was very low.
Following the death of William Rufus, his younger brother Henry claimed the thrown of England. Notably, there was a period of monetary crisis during the reign, which led to a public lack of confidence in the quality of the coinage minted. In response, coins were officially mutilated with an edge incision when issued to force the public to accept damaged coins.
This coin comes with an old collectors ticket.
