I found this a couople of days ago. Just cleaned it up as it was a bit of a state and it appears to have the date 1811 under the Head shown in photo.

However, looking through my coins books it doesn't appear to match George 111 head, so I don't know if it's a
coin from another part of UK?

It's 28/29mm wide.

Any ideas?

It's a halfpenny token issued by the British Copper Company at Walthamstow, Essex. The legend is VINCIT AMOR PATRIĆ. See here:

They are likely to have been used mainly in London and Swansea - Walthamstow and Landore will have been relatively minor outlets for them. The halfpennies do not bear the name of a place where they could have been redeemed except the very tiny BCC found on the ground by Britannia's shield."

Stop picking on Peter  Angry


He started it, mum!  Shocked


Anyway, it's not right that one person should eat all those pies and Sunday roasts and Christmas dinners.

And why are you sticking up for Peter The Pie, anyway  Huh  Grin

We'll if he gets a sensitive reaction to pies and cooked dinners he shouldn't be scoffing them!  Grin

I've had to go on a diet as a result of the ridicule Peter heaped on me with 'that' picture he posted on this very site.

I've been mentally affected, and I'm rebuilding my confidence by attacking by accuser. It's cost me a fortune..
with all the diet food I've had to buy, plus new shed and treadmill, electrics, etc.  Cry

Tyna, I hope you are going to tell Peter The Pie off as well as as I'm more sensitive than him !!!!!!!!!!!  Wink
