Saor Alba's Edward III Nobel ca. 1364-5

977045.jpg

A bit of Anglish booty from south of Hadrian's wall, this Edward III nobel was minted ca. 1364-5 during the brief period of peace while a treaty betwixt the English and French were not slaughtering each other in France. This is reflected on this noble, as it bears Edward III's English and Irish titles, but not the French as were on the previous and subsequent coinages.

 

Whilst contemporary coinages of England and Europe were rather crude and unattractive, these nobles and their fractions were inspired by the gold coinages in Italy, notably Fiorenza(Florence) and England had to best them with this attractive and inspirational piece that would further inspire Scottish coinage during the time.
