George III, Penny 1806-7
In 1806 the Soho Mint made the first copper pennies struck on a steam driven press. This design was struck for only two years 1806 and 1807. It had King George III as a Roman Emperor on one side and Britannia seated on the other side. These were the first copper coins to be struck as we know them today. Only struck for two years and available in two different grades Fine and Very Fine. They are now over 200 years old and the first of their type to be made.
