Victoria, Penny (Young Head) Copper 1854 and 1858 Extremely Fine

Copper Pennies first introduced in 1797 under George III were worth their weight in copper, which was a huge 1oz. By Victorian times the copper pennies - which were struck between 1838 and 1860 - were reduced to 0.6oz, before they changed to the smaller Bronze “Bun Head” design. We have been putting high-grade Copper Pennies of Victoria away for a number of years and are delighted to offer you these impressive pieces in Extremely Fine grade. They feature William Wyon’s depiction of Victoria’s “Young Head” on the obverse and the classic Britannia reverse. Some dates are very rare, we will be offering ones dated 1854 and 1858 only.
