Was wondering if anyone could help me:


I collected coins when I was younger and I'm only getting back into it now. Was looking through my collection and noticed that I have a very small coin labeled as a 1.5 d with date 1860. The date itself is clear but the value is not: the 1 is clearly visible but the 1/2 is not clear.

Does anyone else have such a coin? I've searched for it online but haven't been able to find mention of it. Perhaps it is incorrectly labeled?


Any help is appreciated! :ninja:

Hi, and welcome to coinpeople!


A quick look in the book shows that there is a 1860 1.5d (one and a half pence, better known as three halfpence), so it probably is what it's labeled as.

Hi Nathan

The coin you have is listed in ESC (English Silver Coinage) ref 2260.

It was issued for the colonies and never legal tender in Britain.

It had a mintage of 160,000 and is valued at £5 in Fine to £65 in Unc
