Victoria Bun Head Penny, Halfpenny & Farthing Set

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 at the age of 18 and reigned for 63 years and 216 days, the second longest reign of any British monarch. Her first coins came into circulation in 1838 and carried a youthful portrait, known as the Young Head which was used until 1860 when a new design was introduced, known as the ‘Bun Head’ Coinage. At the same time they stopped striking coins in copper and introduced a Farthing, Halfpenny and Penny in Bronze with this new portrait. We offer here type sets of these bronze ‘Bun Head’ coins struck between 1860-1895. You get one of each denomination, Farthing, Halfpenny and Penny supplied in VG-Fine condition.

Gloves for handling

Our friends at Lighthouse have designed a glove especially for handling coins. In between the ridges and valleys of your fingerprints there are acids. If these come into contact with the surface of the coins, this can leave your fingerprint indelibly etched into the surface of the coin. The real problem is that it can take years for this ‘fingerprint’ to appear. They have designed lightweight cotton gloves that are easy to wear and still protect your coins from damage due to handling.
