Ludica Penny https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/early-medieval/middle-anglo-saxon-period-kings-of-mercia/ludica-penny-51446.html Sun, 28 Aug 2016 00:00:00 GMT Middle Anglo-Saxon period, Kings of Mercia Ludica Penny  
Description: Penny of Ludica of Mercia, struck by moneyer Eadgar at uncertain East Anglian mint. Part of flan missing.

Coins of Ludica are extremely rare, and particularly the present type. In a corpus of the coins published in BNJ XXXII (1963) the total is just four, but at least three further examples have subsequently been recorded. Of the present type (North 399), however, there are possibly only three other known examples, two of which were struck by the moneyer Eadgar, and one by Eadnoth. Of the two struck by Eadgar, one is a variety without a beaded inner circle on the obverse, and the other a fragment which was previously attributed to Cuthred of Kent. (This is because the initial letter of the king's name is entered as C rather than L, and only the first two letters, CV, survive on the fragment.) The present coin is struck from different dies to any of the foregoing.

Description: A light coinage portrait penny of Offa of Mercia, struck at London, circa AD 765-792.

The UKDFD is grateful to Martin Allen for the following information:
This is a new 'mule' between an obverse of Type 47 and reverse of Type 44 in Derek Chick's The Coinage of Offa and his Contemporaries. Chick lists only one coin of this reverse type, from the 1992 Aiskew hoard.

Cf. EMC: 1992.7637, 2007.0165 and 2018.0028
(Decorative motifs in reverse angles differ from those on the present coin.)

Coenwulf Penny https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/early-medieval/middle-anglo-saxon-period-kings-of-mercia/coenwulf-penny-5922.html Fri, 02 Feb 2007 00:00:00 GMT Middle Anglo-Saxon period, Kings of Mercia Coenwulf Penny  
Description: Coenwulf penny, struck at an East Anglian mint, circa AD 798-821. Flan chipped.

The coin appears to be a hitherto unrecorded variety. It is similar to North 369 (see UKDFD 4169), but lacks the large central annulet, and has smaller, rosette-like, cross terminals. On the obverse, the incorporation of a Roman 'M' (Mercia) into the king's shoulder drapery differs from the norm, where it is of rounded style and appears at the end of the legend.
