Kings of Wessex Aethelstan Silver Penny 924-939AD Enelbert
22mm, 1.39g

S.1089
The eldest son of Edward the Elder, he succeeded in the re-conquest of Danish controlled territory with the capture of York in 927AD. He introduced the coinage law at Grately which stated that there should be one coinage throughout the kings land and no minting except in a port; it also outlined the quota of moneyers for each borough.

This coin comes with an old collectors ticket.
