Indulging in an array of ill-advised wars and political intrigues, and desperately needing money, King Henry III turned to Ireland and its silver mines. In 1251, the Dublin Mint was re-opened, and for three years produced pennies, essentially to facilitate easy export of Irish silver. In 1254, with Ireland stripped of its silver, and the local economy severely damaged, Henry closed the Mint.
