Victoria Pair of Copper & Bronze Farthings

In the reign of Queen Victoria they changed the metal content of our smallest coins from Copper to Bronze. The new coins 1860-1895 were thinner and easier to use, they probably also cost the Royal Mint less to make…We are offering the pair of Copper Queen Victoria Farthing and Bronze Queen Victoria farthing in Very Good to Fine condition. It is a very interesting period and an important change over in British coinage, the next one wasn’t until 1920.

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.
