Historical background


(Seventh - eighth centuries)

If minting these coins is to be at the beginning of the eighth century, in Britain, it is not unusual to find them in Gaul. They are often confused with the Merovingian silver coins (see COINS XIX, No. 503, sceattas c. 680-710, classified Merovingian denier of Laon). During the eighth century, the style of these pieces is more degenerate, they are often on ridges or filled. These small coins disappear from circulation in the second half of the eighth century.
