@pepactonius' Aargau and Solothurn coins reminded me I still have this 2 1/2 Batzen coin from the canton of Berne kicking around in my collection. Maybe the first and last day we will see three Swiss coins?

An 1826 Farthing in bad shape and an 1826 Penny in much worse shape do nothing to make George IV's looks improve.

Paralyse, your 1826 Farthing is very interesting as there were 2 types that year, the older head you see on mine and Numisrob's and your is the younger fuller faced head.
The earlier type was issued 1821/26 and later 1826 to 1830.

I love seeing the more battered coins of this era, afterall they are nearly 200 years old and at this time, many of them were exported around the burgeoning empire (Probably most of my post 1800 UK coins have a Kiwi/Aussie context).

Here is my sole 1825 piece, a better than average halfcrown.




A bit of darkening and staining, here is a coin in gFine heading towards VF condition and actually a lot better preserved than my 1826 yesterday. I also paid a lot more for it than my 1826. Prices for coins of this era go up exponentially above VF condition.

1825 was also the 1st year of this 3rd design and 2nd skinnier head bust. Earlier coins have the fleshier and more jowled king.

George's vanity forced this change to a nicer portrait, take this famous painting - designed to make him look as pretty as possible!

An imagined Thomas Lawrence portrait showing him as a skinny dandy. The portrait is real, but Lawrence was under orders to magically remove excessive poundage from his body. This is 1815, but George loved dressing like Beau Brummel, obviously with a hairpiece to his death.




A more actual tint from 1821

George was my weight by the age of 31 (I am 17 stone) and a 50 inch waist in 1820 about 350lb at least.

The top portrait makes him look like an 1820s version of Prince. The bottom is more real, but he still has his jet black hair piece.

We are now far back enough to see a long s as well "Publifhed"
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

1825 British farthing with the earlier Pistrucci portrait of George IV - jowls and all!

Shilling with the new flattering portrait by Wyon:

Halfcrown (more worn than Princetane's although it has a nice circulation cameo!):

Another boring US Large Cent - N8.




February 9, 1825 - After no presidential candidate receives a majority of United States Electoral College votes following the 1824 United States presidential election, the United States House of Representatives elects John Quincy Adams President of the United States in a contingent election.
