1799 George III coin


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Have finally got my camera back.


Would be grateful for some information regarding this coin (grade, value, history etc...). Is it a farthing? I ask because I have seen a 1799 farthing but it states'farthing' underneath Britannia.


Many thanks,

This half penny was made in the SOHO mint in Birmingham. Acording to my 1997 "Coins of England" all half pennies and farthings of this year (1799) were patterns, but the value does not reflect that. Seems odd ? More research needed .
