Description

Edward the Confessor (1042-1066), Penny, PACX type (c.1042-1044), Canterbury mint, moneyer Gyldewine, diademed bust left with fleur de lis tipped sceptre as opposed to the conventional quatrefoil tip, legend commences at top +EDPERD RE. Rev, pellet in annulet at centre of voided long cross, PACX letters struck in angles, reads +GYLDEPINE ON CΛ, 1.12g (S.1171; N.813; BMC IV; Pagan : 28, Bust Ai/ dies Bb – BNJ 81 – 2011 ‘The PACX type of Edward the Confessor’ this coin).

Recorded previously as an extremely rare moneyer for this type, one die known. Pagan cites five examples being known in his article in the BNJ 81. Unevenly toned with a subtle grey green patina, slightly crimpled, a crude portrait yet simultaneously detailed. Reverse displaying near absolute clarity with the exception of two peck marks. Very fine and considerably rare. An academic coin with an excellent provenance and classification.
