1826 George IV Halfpenny MS 64 Obverse.

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£340.00
A collectable copper Halfpenny of King George IV, dated 1826 and graded MS 64 BN. The obverse features the laureate head of George V facing left within a toothed border. This is the work of William Wyon who would become Chief Engraver to the Royal Mint in 1828. The reverse - also by Wyon - shows the seated figure of Britannia, the female personification of Great Britain, holding a trident and resting her hand on an oval shield bearing the Union Jack. National flower emblems can be seen below Britannia’s feet. George IV was born in August 1762 and from 1811 served as regent for his father, George III. He reigned in his own right from 1820 to 1830 but Halfpennies were only minted with his portrait between 1825 and 1827. This superb example in a high grade would make an excellent addition to any collection. Edge: plain. Weight: 9.26 grams. Grade: MS 64 BN (NGC Cert # 6029549-010). References: Peck 1433, S 3824.
