We weren’t sure whether to recommend this one or not, as Lindybeige is, to put it mildly, not your normal YouTuber. A very enthusiastic guy, he normally concentrates on military history, with the occasional detour into other things. Other things this time include an almost hour long ramble through the vagaries of English coinage through history.

It’s a little odd, but it is a great attempt at making the many weird and complex variables in what constitutes an old English coin, somewhat more accessible. With the increasing trend of late for the reimagining of old coins, we thought we’d at least highlight this quirky characters take on the subject.
