Roberts attributes this coin to Henry I from AD 1152 to 1180.  PdA attributes it to Henry II from AD 1180 to 1197.  We believe the attribution in Roberts is probably the correct one as the coin is fairly common as one would expect with the longer reign.  It is possible it was struck during both reigns.
