Metal Stamping - Pair of iron dies for a half groat (2d). Dies like these from Edward III's reign were used to make all medieval coins. An image was engraved into each die and hardened by heat. The die with the spike was set into a block, and a blank coin placed in-between the two dies. The top die was then hit with a hammer, which stamped the images onto the coin. © Historic Royal Palaces.
