The first pieces were undated but others are with 1722, 1723, 1724 and 1733. They were issued in only three denominations, a half penny, penny and the twopence. The obverse has the head of George I and a partial legend, “GEORGIUS•DEI•GR” and the rest is missing. The reverse is a centered rose in full bloom with “ROSA•AMERICANA•UTILE•DULCI” surrounding the rose. The means the (American Rose is useful and sweet). The Rosa Americana coins were rejected by the American colonists. They are also considered to be Colonial Issues. The obverse of George I was the main reason for the rejection. This is not a clipped planchet but rather a broken one. These types coins are made of a brass composition containing copper and zinc. Which is confused with what is called Bath Metal. The Planchets are rough and porous. You can see the jagged edge of this piece. This is the only one I have which I just acquired at a very low price. The previous owner didn’t like the coin due to the break but I think that adds character and history to the coin and I’m proud to have it as part of my collection. Hope you enjoy it.
