Add to album

This is the reverse of a James III billon penny minted at Edinburgh between 1484 and 1489, during the reign of James III. The coin was worth one penny Scots. It was part of a hoard found at Rhoneston in Dumfriesshire in 1961.

The reverse has a single long cross with an annulet between three pellets in each angle and an extra point beside each group of pellets. The Latin inscription translates as: 'Town of Edinburgh'.

Some James III coins continued to be minted for a short while after his death.
