George IV, Farthing Type II VG

There were two types of King George IV Farthings issued, but they look very similar. There is a bust of the King wearing a laurel wreath and Britannia on the reverse. The second type presented here had a thinner bust and was issued from 1826-30. We can offer this George IV copper Farthing in Very Good condition, which isn’t too bad considering that the newest one is now 191 years old. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you.

British Pattern Euro Proof Set 2003

Although we never joined the Euro, INA made up pattern Euro Proof Sets for many nations and the United Kingdom was one of them. It is a nine piece set from the 1 Cent size to the crownsized 5 Euro including two bi-metallic pieces. These follow the size and the metal as used on the actual Euro coins, that were issued of course. It has been sometime since we have been able to offer this collection, we think it fills in an important part of our numismatic heritage. You get the following sized coins: 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, 1 Euro, 2 Euro and crownsized 5 Euro all in brilliant proof condition. Each coin comes in an envelope in a bag. We got these sets from a dealer in Scotland who forgot he had them. Once these are gone that will be that... Remember you are getting 9 proof coins in your British Pattern Euro Proof Set...

George III, Halfpenny 1806/7 Fair_obv

George III, Halfpenny 1806/7 Fair

We have just bought a group of George III Halfpennies dated 1806 and 1807, the only two dates for which this type was struck. They are well circulated and therefore fairly worn but this is because there were no more copper coins struck for circulation until 1821 and these coins continued circulating well after that. These copper coins were struck at the Soho Mint in Birmingham using the newly invented steam presses invented by Matthew Boulton and James Watt. They have the laureate bust of George III on the obverse with the date below and Britannia seated on the reverse. We can offer them in Fair to suit your budget but we also have both dates available so if you order two then we can supply both dates for your collection.

Charles I Rose Farthing Very Fine_obv

Charles I, Farthing (Rose) Very Fine

During the reign of King Charles I (1625–1649) the copper farthings - introduced by his father, James I – continued to be produced. There were two types called the “Richmond” and “Maltravers”- named after Frances Stewart, Dowager Duchess of Richmond and Lennox, and Lord Maltravers – who were awarded a patent by the King to produce the farthings. Due to the high number of forgeries, in 1636 Lord Maltravers was asked to introduce a new style of farthing which came to be called the Rose Farthing—it was much smaller and thicker than the “Maltravers”, but the revolutionary development was the copper coin had a small “plug” of brass inserted in the centre. This made the Rose Farthing an early example of a Bimetallic coin and also almost impossible to counterfeit, and the production of forgeries soon ended. The obverse shows two sceptres through a crown, and the legend CAROLVS DG MAG BRIT—Charles, by the grace of God, of Great Britain—while the reverse shows a double rose and the inscription FRAN ET HIB REX - France and Ireland King. These are being offered in Very Fine and would make a super addition to your farthing collection!
