My only 1814-dated coin is a Bank of England token for one shilling and sixpence:

These tokens were issued to relieve the severe shortage of silver coins at the time. They were classified as 'tokens' as their weight in silver was lower than the 'official' silver coins, and were demonetised in 1820, when sufficient new silver coins were in circulation. Two different designs were issued - this is the later type, engraved by Thomas Wyon, who also engraved the dies for the 1815-R 20-franc piece!

Beautiful medal, paralyse And great looking 20 francs from Bordeaux, pepactonius! Mine is less uncommon, from Paris.

France 1814, 20 francs, Louis XVIII, Paris (A).



After Napoleon's forced abdication in 1814, France returned to monarchy. Louis XVIII, younger brother to Louis XVI who was deposed and executed during the French revolution, became king. The first coins with the new ruler were 5 francs and 20 francs. They were designed rather hastily by the engraver Tiolier while he followed the king on his way to Paris to be installed on the throne. The result was not entirely pleasing, neither to the king nor to Tiolier himself. A competition for a new design was launched within a few months, resulting in a new portrait and design from 1816.

Very much enjoying the European history lessons behind the coins of the last few days

Also really enjoyed the Angola coin yesterday with the unusual denomination. At one time I had a more common (and recent) Republic of Congo coin denominated in makuta (with a K), so now I understand there was a far earlier origin.

1814 US Large Cent - S294



The last year of the "Turban Head" design.

The following year of 1815 would be the only year in which the US Mint struck no one cent pieces.

My sole 1813 piece is a Canadian token





A Halfpenny sized token with the "Marquis Wellington 1813" on one side and Britannia holding a branch and trident with "Commerce". I thought it was a British conder, but its Canadian, and proof that the ongoing coin shortage was also affecting the Colonies as well as the UK.

It was struck too during the 1812 - 1815 war between Britain and the USA. Condition is VG to Fine.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Nice selection. I've got one of those Isle of Man pennies but not as nice as paralyses's. Here's a different 1813 halfpenny token from Princetane's - this was struck by the British Copper Company in Walthamstow, just outside London:


French silver 2 francs of Napoleon - struck at Lille (W mintmark):
