Hammered

British hammered coins began around 600ad and continued to be produced for in excess of 1,000 years. Hammered coins were produced by placing a blank piece of metal of the correct weight between two dies and then striking the upper die with a hammer to produce the required image on both sides. 

Later on, in order to increase production, hammered coins were sometimes produced from strips of metal of the correct thickness from which the coins were subsequently cut out. Hammered coins tend to be very irregular and were thus liable to clipping; this is where people would remove slivers of precious metal since it was difficult to determine the correct diameter of the coin.
