2 coins from me for 1843 both British and both low value.





A holed groat. A groat was a fourpenny coin which was first used in the 13th century, used widely from 1351 to around 1675, they were issued as Muandy pieces right through, but were superseded by the 3d and 6d bits. Reissues of Groats took place in the early 19th century for use in colonies. This coin is holed and very worn but an intact example.




A copper farthing, better than average (Fine - VF). The smallest official coin, values down to 1/4 were made for colonial use and evidence of 1/2 farthings circulating in Britain are known too.

This is a nice coin and the last from me for a while.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Nice coins, everyone!

Some Victorian small change from the UK:

Farthing:

Threepence:

Four Pence (Groat):

Shilling:

The silver groat had started to disappear from circulation during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, eclipsed by the threepenny bit and sixpence. It was a Scottish Member of Parliament, Joseph Hume, who was largely responsible for the coin's revival in the 1830s. At the time, four pence was a common cab fare in London, and Mr Hume was apparently fed up with giving cab drivers a sixpence and being told "Sorry, Guv, I've got no change!" The coin was nicknamed the "Joey" after him.

Thanks NumisRob, I knew there was some reason for that groat being issued.

I think in 1830s London 4d was also the lowest postage rate before penny post was introduced in 1839.

I can't believe we are nearly finished with Victoria - just 6 more days and we reach the Georgian era!

Paralyse, I love that Seated dollar!
