Picture of George VI, Penny Brilliant Uncirculated, 1949

George VI, Penny Brilliant Uncirculated, 1949

In 1949 the Royal Mint changed the legend on our coinage, IND IMP was omitted. This was due to India gaining its independence from this country and there was no longer a reason to have it on the legend. There were only two more pennies after this issue and both of these are Rare and very expensive, especially in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. If you want an important type coin at a price that won’t break the bank, then this 1949 Penny without IND IMP is the coin for you. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and came from a bag that was found in a bank in the United States. They had been there since 1949! These are priced right to entice and delight you and at our price, it might be interesting to buy a couple of extra pieces for trading with other collectors.
