1723 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny Fine

This 1723 Wood's Hibernia Half Penny is well struck and features a nice smooth planchet on this early Colonial coin.

Coin Highlights:

  • The legend "Hibernia" is the Latin name for Ireland and it means the "Land of Winter."
  • Georgius Dei Gratia Rex is Latin for "George, by the Grace of God, King."
  • These coins found their way to colonial America from Ireland where the populace refused to use the coins King George authorized.
  • Obverse: Bust of King George facing right.
  • Reverse: Depicts Britannia with a harp.
  • The centers are typically weakly struck, but it is a problem-free example.

This is an amazing opportunity to own a coin minted over 50 years before America declared its independence from Great Britain. Add this nice colonial coin to your cart today!
