Edward the Martyr Penny Lympne

Edward the Martyr (975-978), silver Penny, Lympne Mint, Moneyer Leofwine, draped portrait left, linear circle and legend with outer beaded circle surrounding both sides, +EADPEARD REX ANGLORX, last two letters ligatured, rev. small cross pattee, +LEOFPINE M-O LIMN, the NE ligatured, weight 1.44g (N.763; S.1142). Weakly struck at centre, toned, very fine and of the highest rarity, though to be one of two that exist.

The legends translate on obverse as "Edward King of the English" and reverse "Leofwine at Lympne."

Only one other example of Leofwine at this Mint is thought to reside in the Paris National Collection. The Early Medieval Corpus records a Lympne Mint coin under Edward the Martyr of Moneyer Wine.

Provenance:

Purchased from A H Baldwin & Sons Ltd, Summer 2006.
