This coin is a halfpenny struck in Dublin by John after he became King of England under, the authority of the moneyer Roberd.
Roberd is by far the most prolific moneyer in this period - the vast majority of pennies and many of the smaller denomination were struck under his authority.
The legends are :
Obverse : IOh.AN REX (King John)
Reverse ROBERD ON D (Roberd of Dublin)
This coin is in Extremely Fine (EF) condition, but is was struck significantly off-centre, especially on the obverse. These halfpennies are scarce in this grade - but well centred pieces are more sought after.
