    Shrews1994 KIND OF A BIG DEAL.

    Need help too Identify this. 1d is a dollar coin I believe. I can't figure out how to find this to identify it. CM181213-163708001.jpg CM181213-163731002.jpg CM181213-163741003.jpg

    Lucky you! I've never had a hen & chicks Irish penny before. They also have a whole farm if you want to collect them:

    Farthing: Woodcock
    1/2 Penny: Sow & piglets
    Penny: Hen & chicks
    3 Pence: Blue hare
    6 Pence: Irish Wolfhound
    Shilling: Bull
    Florin: Salmon
    1/2 Crown: Irish Hunter (horse)


    Edit:
    I should clarify for you. On the Great Britain and Ireland pre-decimal coinage, the d stands for penny/pence. Thus:

    1d == penny
    3d == 3 pence
    6d == 6 pence

    It's from Ireland, it's an Irish Eire coin.

    The Irish Penny dated 1942 and 1968 also have a variety to look out for, its called the Chickless Penny.
