This historic coin was minted during the House of York's first visit to the throne in 1461. Edward married Elizabeth Woodville (the 'White Queen') in 1464, but the throne was lost in 1470 after the continual struggle for power with the Lancastrians. His second reign during 1471-83 brought relative peace to the country.
