Description
Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be post-Medieval in date (1500-1850), those which seem to mimic Medieval penny designs are deemed to be Medieval, the remainder which carry stylised designs remain difficult to date but the majority are probably post-Medieval in date c. 1500-1850.

The Powell classification system, in which there are over 30 categories, attempts to classify these leaden tokens according to the designs featured on each face, but it does not assign any dating information to the design typology.

Description
Early Medieval Anglo Saxon silver penny, of Coenwulf (796-821 AD). Tribrach related type. Caentwarabyrig (Canterbury) mint; Sæbeorht, moneyer. Struck 798-805. + COENVVLF REX, large m / (pellets) SEB/ ERHT around central bone-shaped device.

Coin has been recorded in the Corpus of Early Medieval Coin Finds (EMC) as EMC 2018.0298.

This is a coin of the Canterbury moneyer Saeberht in the Tribrach Phase of Coenwulf's coinage (797/8-805). Rory Naismith's book The Coinage of Southern England 796-865 lists three coins of this type (Type C15.1, North 343/1), one of which (C15.1c, found in Kent in 1994) is from the same dies as my find.
