The Anglo-Saxon period saw the introduction of the first English coins in the late 8th century. These coins, known as pennies, were struck in silver and featured simple designs inspired by Roman coinage that formerly circulated in Britain.

The Norman period began with the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 AD under William the Conquer. Coins of this period and the Anglo-Saxon kings were created by hammering a blank piece of metal between two dies. These coins were often irregular in shape and size because they were made by hand.

New milled coinage was introduced during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I in 1561 AD, enabling the production of more accurate and consistent coins. However, it was only in the early 1660s, under the reign of Charles II, that this coinage method became widely adopted.
