The long cross silver penny was named for the reason of the cross that went the full diameter of the coin. This was done so that clipping was prevented or reduced to a minimum

Edward I� (17 June 1239 – 7 July 1307), also known as� Edward Longshanks� and the� Hammer of the Scots� (Latin:� Malleus Scotorum), was� King of England� from 1272 to 1307. The first son of� Henry� III, Edward was involved early in the political intrigues of his father's reign, which included an outright rebellion

� In 1259, he briefly sided with a baronial reform movement, supporting the� Provisions of Oxford. After reconciliation with his father, however, he remained loyal throughout the subsequent armed conflict, known as the� Second Barons' War. After the� Battle of Lewes, Edward was hostage to the rebellious barons, but escaped after a few months and joined the fight against� Simon de Montfort

� Montfort was defeated at the� Battle of Evesham� in 1265, and within two years the rebellion was extinguished. With England pacified, Edward left on a� crusade� to the� Holy Land. The crusade accomplished little, and Edward was on his way home in 1272 when he was informed that his father had died. Making a slow return, he reached England in 1274 and he was crowned king at Westminster on 19� August
