Victoria, Copper Halfpenny Very Fine

When Queen Victoria came to the throne the first thing they had to do was strike coins with her portrait on them. One of my favourites and the most difficult denomination to get was the Halfpenny. In those days halfpennies were struck between 1838 -1860 on thick planchets of copper not the thin bronze coins they would issue later. You have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on one side and the seated figure of Britannia on the other side. We have a few and I do mean a few of the high grade examples to offer you. Supplies are limited and this is, after all, the most difficult denomination to get, especially in high grades.

Victoria came to the throne a very young woman, she was only 18 when she became Queen. Her first coins carried a very youthful portrait of Queen Victoria a portrait carried on for the next 50 years. The Shilling was struck in Sterling Silver and because they were used every day, they come well-circulated. We offer them here in Fair conditio; remember that the newest coin is now 130 years old.
