Imagine owning a coin issued over 740 years ago during the time of castles, kings and fearless knights on horseback! Now you can, with a Long Cross silver Penny from the famed Brussels Hoard. Unearthed in 1908, the find is still considered the largestdeliberately buried hoard ever discovered! Thought to have been intended as a royal payment, these hoard coins were struck from 1247-1272 under England's King Henry III. Back then, thieves would "clip" precious silver from the edges of pennies (which featured a small cross). Clever King Henry solved the problem by reintroducing the coin with a long cross extending to its edges!

The historic coins offered here depict a crowned portrait of King Henry III on the obverse. These affordable artifacts have been graded by our experts and certified by NGC. Order now to own a silver penny that may have been held by someone in King Henry's court!
