A Collection of Scottish Coins, the Property of a Gentleman (Part I)

John Baliol (1292-1296), Second coinage, Sterling, without mint name (possibly Aberdeen), larger lettering of better style, bust left, rev. long cross, two mullets and two stars of five points in angles, 1.37g/1h (Stewartby and Holmes 30/bh; SCBI 35, 306, same dies; B 18, fig. 221, same obv, die; S 5071). Good fine, toned, rare £150-£200


Provenance: bt June 2013

With the loss of Berwick to the English in 1296, St Andrews remained a mint in the second coinage. However it is the vendor's belief that 'the Second coinage resulted from a new administration, set up at the time of the guardianship of Wallace and [much of it] was issued from a northern mint, probably Aberdeen'.
