Sterling of John I, Duke of Brabant.
Obverse legend: I DVX LIMBVRGIE - John, Duke of Limburg.
Reverse legend: DVX BRABANTIE - Duke of Brabant.
Towards the end of the 13th century, sterlings of the Low Countries began to circulate widely (but unofficially) in England, and this type, depicting the bust with a chaplet of roses, was colloquially known as a 'crockard'. Although, at this early period, there are distinct differences in appearance, the majority of the public would probably not readily distinguish it from a contemporary English penny of Edward I.
