Victoria, Half Farthing Fine

The copper Half Farthing of Queen Victoria is a most unusual coin. They only made them in copper and most were used overseas, but they were of course legal tender and used in this country. We recently bought an old dealers hoard of these coins, most are dated 1844 or 1843 and they are in Fine condition. We last bought a hoard about ten years ago and this new hoard was very timely, as we had almost run out of them. They are not a coin that you can just go out and buy a quantity when you need it, they are not easy to get. This coin has always been one of my favourite denomination, a Half Farthing just sounds so unusual. The last time this denomination was used was under Queen Victoria and they were only struck in the early part of her reign, when the coins were copper and not bronze.

In the reign of Queen Victoria the Half Farthing was only struck in copper. It is one of the smallest denominations ever made. We have a wonderful group of these copper Half Farthings in very high grade. Most of them will be dated 1844. You have the Young Head on one side and the date and denomination on the other side. They are struck in copper and now are over 173 years old. But the most interesting thing is their high quality.
