Coin (Reverse), penny, from reign of James I
Add to album

This is the reverse of a billon penny minted at Aberdeen between 1424 and 1437 during the reign of James I. The coin was worth one penny Scots.

The reverse has a single long cross with three pellets in each angle. The Latin inscription translates as: ' Town of Aberdeen'.

When he inherited the crown, James I was a prisoner in England. He did not return to Scotland until 1424 and few if any of his coins are thought to have been struck before then.
