Victoria, Halfpenny (Young Head) 1853 Choice Unc

It was March 30th, 1853, in a town called Zundert in the South of the Netherlands, a baby by the name of Vincent was born. He went on to become quite a prominent artist! A week later, in Buckingham Palace, Queen Victoria was about to give birth to Leopold – her eighth of 9 children, at the tender age of 33 years old. The circulating coinage of the time included the Halfpennies dated 1853. We have a fabulous small group in Choice Unc condition with some lustre, and a further few in Uncirculated with more muted lustre. These coins were amongst the last copper coins made, a few years later, in 1860, the bronze coinage was introduced and copper phased out. The coin features the classic young portrait of Victoria by William Wyon, depicted as she was at 17 years of age, with date below. The reverse features the classic seated Britannia with shield and trident. High-grade Halfpennies from the year of Van Gogh’s birth and a great addition to your collection.
