Description: James I halfpenny of Edinburgh.

The coin is extremely rare. It is closely similar to the example illustrated by Burns (see References below), but not from the same dies. The die-cutter seems to have used an 'I' punch for both the 'G' of EDINBVRGH and the 'G' of GRACIA, although Burns transcribes the latter as 'T' on his coin.

Description: James I of Scotland gold demy (valued at 9 shillings). The reverse legend ends in the single letter 'R' in place of the expected abbreviation of DOMINE. Burns (Coinage of Scotland) comments: "A remarkable circumstance on these pieces is the substitution of IP, IR and R for DNE, as if the moneyer had been short of the proper letters."
