Engraver: Ian Rank-Broadley

Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS is a British sculptor who has produced many acclaimed works, among which are several designs for British coinage.

Reverse

Kookaburra on a branch (similar to KM# 616) with a special privy mark depicting the overlapping reverse and obverse designs of an English Hammered Silver King Edward penny, struck between 1272-1327 AD. Known as the Long Cross Penny, as depicted on the reverse, the long cross design was introduced during this period to alleviate the problem of people ‘clipping’ the coin edges. A stylized, non-realistic portrait of the reigning English Monarch, Edward I, is shown on the obverse.
