Found my original write-up for this so here you have it.

1844 - Berlin Exposition - Steam Loco/German Industries
Bronze proof medal, 45mm, 51.6g with thick plain edge

References: Slg. Wurzbach 685; Slg. Marienburg 4234

Obv: Germania seated holding wreath and sword, motto "Seid Einig" (Be United) engraved on rock

Engraved and struck by Christian Loos.

Legend in German: Erinnerung an die Ausstellung Deutscher Gewerbserzeugnisse zu Berlin 1844 (Commemorating the Exhibition of German Trade Goods in Berlin 1844)

Rev: An autumn or harvest wreath with five images -- a steamship, a mine, a cottage, an iron foundry and a wool mill -- encircles a steam locomotive and its tender (the 'Adler', Germany's first successful commercial steam locomotive, built in 1835) that is passing over a brick arched bridge. The images represent Germany's key industrial and trade exports of the era: shipbuilding, textiles, metal, ore, and timber.

Engraved by C. H. Lorenz & E. Schilling and struck by Loos.

Legend in German: Vorwärts mit Deutschem Fleisse und Deutscher Kraft (Forward with German industriousness and German strength)

One of two surviving replicas of the 'Adler' (Eagle) was fully restored and rebuilt from 2007-2010 and resides in the Nuremberg Transport Museum, where it still makes rail journeys -- under its own steam! -- on very special occasions.

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in the 13th century, used widely from 1351 to around 1675, they were issued as Muandy pieces right through, but were superseded by the 3d and 6d bits.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.

I do have an 1843 Farthing but I need to redo the photos

So until then, here's a bit larger coin...

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!
