A couple of slight weaknesses around rim and on lettering, image of Prince clear and bold, a full round pleasing coin, good very fine and rare.

The abbreviated Latin legends translate as on the obverse "Edward, first born of the King of England, Prince of Aquitaine" and on the reverse "God is a righteous judge, strong and patient". These coins were probably issued from November 1366 and would have circulated until at least the monetary reform of 1st May 1368.
