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.
