The noble coin was introduced during the second coinage action of King Edward III between 1344 and 1346. The coins were preceded in England by the gold penny and the florin, but the noble was far more popular and more widely available throughout the kingdom. It was so popular, in fact, that derivatives of the noble were released in the form of half noble and quarter noble coins.
