1939 George VI Copper Half Penny Coin.
Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Please get in touch if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
The Britannia image, which had featured on the Half-Penny since the reign of Charles II, was due to be replaced by the image featured here for Edward VIII's proposed coinage. As Edward VIII abdicated before his circulation coins were produced, the design was carried over instead for the ex-King's brother George VI. The ship is thought to represent Sir Francis Drake's flagship, 'The Golden Hind'. This design was featured on the Half-Penny until decimalisation in 1971.
