‚ÄčThe Long Cross Pennies of Henry III 

Scottish Contemporary Coinage

Page added: Jan 12th 2016

Whilst Henry III long cross pennies were being minted in England from 1247 through to seven years after Henry's death in 1272, over the border in Scotland pennies were issued as follows:


Alexander II .......................1214-49

Alexander III ......................1249-86


These Scottish coins are often found in hoards of Henry III pennies, and also crop up as isolated detector finds in England.
