I know this is a very worn coin that's not much to look at, but I'm just a little puzzled on who's head is on it? The other side has Britannia on it.


I have looked through my book and google but can't work it out. Any help would be appreciated, so I can sleep easy  Tongue

Its a George III copper 1770 to 1775 issue. No scale in your photo but probably a halfpenny Cheesy

Thank you dodger. It is a half penny, it matches my other George III half penny. It was just annoying me because I couldn't make it out. Need to change my contact lenses I think  Grin

Hi Jon, just remember with coins that, from the rein of Elizabeth 1st especially, each monarch that featured on a coin, that ruled after one another, faced in the opposite direction to the one of the previous rein. So knowing that, your coin for instance could have been George I or III, as both faced right, but from size etc you could work it out further. And I don't know why but it seems that George 3rd coins is the worst for wear in my opinion, of any monarch, in terms of copper coinage, so even without knowing the size, I would have said it was George III. And if you happen to have a Spink Coin book, they use life like images, so you can place your coin exactly over one of their images and it will match exactly! Cheers, Jon
