A number of wonderful medieval use photographs I found:
Jewry Street silver coin
Picture by Wessex Archaeology
This is a extremely worn case in point of a Medieval silver penny. There is not plenty of visible detail to date it exactly at existing, but in due course it will be cleaned up and x-rayed, which may well reveal much more about it.
The penny was released by King Offa of Mercia about the 12 months 785AD and was in circulation in England for virtually 1,200 decades , right up until 1970 when the decimal currency was introduced.
