    I am still a novice when it comes to British Pennies. I have a large collection, but most are from junk bins and are in F to VF condition. I have a few UNC/Red pennies that I wanted to post, but my scanner/camera is at my in-laws so I can't photograph any coins right now. Though I would like to see some nice examples that are out there.

    Post 'em if you got 'em! :thumb:

    looks like one of the london mint monstrosities plated pennies which are usually the least valuable ones from either 1965 0r 1967, worth around 10p per coin but they put a bit of plating on them and charge around £25.

    i must see around 50 uncirculated 1967 pennies every week, they had a ver short shelf life as decimalisation came in 4 years later and the penny was demonetized. lots of people put them to one side in the hope they would be worth something one day. that said i still miss the old penny...............

    i know it's not worth much, but it was a christmas gift from a member here on ct, so it has sentimental value. and it's my only unc penny.

    I've never seen a late Victorian penny with a bright red patina. Were they purposely blackened? If so, why?

    I just picked up one of those that is supposed to be MS 63. Will try to post when it comes back from grading and is in auction.

    Nice Brit coins, but my interest is in the 1700s British coinage. From what I can gather, the Brit copper penny is a later creation.

    Now, if you want to talk about halfpenny and farthings....:)

    Below is some of the values of the Brit copper penny.

    Note: The value is in pounds and the grading is stricter than in the U.S. (about a grade lower than it would be in the U.S.).

    George III
    Year .....F VF EF Unc
    1d 1797 20 50 300 900
    1d 1806 6 15 70 240
    1d 1807 6 15 70 240
    1d 1808 unique

    Large copper coins dated 1799 are almost certainly halfpence.

    Given the United Kingdom of Britain and Ireland came into being in 1801, this penny ought to qualify as British.
