Medieval Great Britain Henry III Long Cross Penny, 1216 to 1272 VF.

 

Henry III (1 October 1207–16 November 1272), also known as Henry of Winchester, was King of England, Lord of Ireland, and Duke of Aquitaine from 1216 until his death. The son of King John and Isabella of Angoulême, Henry assumed the throne when he was only nine in the middle of the First Barons' War.

These old English coins have got to be some of the coolest. They have that proper medieval look, with crude Latin lettering and a very simplified facing bust of the king. The mint and the moneyer's name are often found on the coin The obverse reads 'HENRICVS REX III' while the reverse (the side with the cross) reads 'IACOB ON BRVST'. James is the English form of the name Iacob, while BRVST is the abbreviated Latin form of Bristol.
