Medieval coins where produced using the hammered process. A disc of
gold or silver was placed betwween two dies - the upper die then being given a hammer blow.
For hundreds of years the silver penny was England's sole denomination.
Coins were halved and quartered in order to provide small change.
One Troy pound of silver (12 Troy ounces) made 240 pennies
In order to help the coins display better they are shown larger than their actual size
