Pennies of Edward the Confessor and Harold II struck at Exeter

By the time of Edward the Confessor’s reign (1042-66), Exeter coins of all types are scarce. The illustration shows examples of each of the ten types of coin issued in his reign.

The museum has strong holdings in this period, with 36 different examples of his coinage and one of his successor Harold II, who died at Hastings in 1066.
