A unique joint issue of King Eanred of Northumbrian and Archbishop Eanbald II – Bradley Hopper & Tony Abramson

Stewart Lyon, when discussing the coinage of ninth century Northumbria in the introduction to the SCBI 68, stated that ‘There are no coins of Eanbald II minted jointly with Eanred’. The appearance of a new coin has served to prove Lyon wrong. This brief note discusses the new joint regal and archiepiscopal issue and its place within early ninth century Northumbrian numismatics.
