Coins were Minted in Pevensey right through to Henry I / Stephen in 1145. Henry I was so annoyed about the standard of coins ‘ as the moneyers made a large profit by producing underweight coins or coins of debased fineness. In 1124 Henry called all 150 moneyers to Winchester and called them to account for their activities — 94 of them were convicted of issuing sub-standard coins and were mutilated, their right hands and one testicle being cut off, as a result of which the quality of coins improved for most of the remainder of his reign’ OUCH !!
