A very collectable, early hammered, silver Penny of King Henry II. A very old coin from Henry the Second, the first Plantagenet King of England. This coin is of the "Short cross" type, and was struck by the moneyer named "Alain" at the York mint between the years 1180-1189. In this period, moneyers had to have their name on the coin to assure quality control. Any coins found to be sub-standard would result in severe consequences for the moneyer, even going so far as hanging! This coin is very well struck and bright, the crudeness is normal for the class.

Obverse
Class 1a5. Cruder style face, more curls to right side, stop before rex. HENRICS REX.

Reverse
Voided short cross with quarter foils in each quarter. ALAIN.ON.EVERW.
