£750.00
A scarce and collectable Proof copper Farthing of King George the Fourth, dated 1826. This superb example from George IV’s second issue (1825-1830) has been professionally graded PF 64 BN by NGC. The obverse features a laureate head of king George IV facing left, engraved by William Wyon, based on a portrait by Sir Francis Chantrey. Farthings were also issued in this year with Benedetto Pistrucci’s portrait of George IV and are easily distinguished by differences in the obverse legend. The reverse - also by Wyon - shows Britannia, seated, holding a trident and resting on an oval shield bearing the Union Flag. National flower emblems can be seen below. George IV was born in August 1762 and from 1811 served as regent for his father, George III. George IV reigned in his own right from 1820 to 1830 and was known for his extravagance. This attractive Copper Farthing in high grade would make a good addition to any collection.
