Hibernia - the Roman name for Ireland - is Latin, meaning "Land of Winter." Georgius Dei Gratia Rex is Latin for "George, by the Grace of God, King"
These coins found their way from Ireland, where the populace refused to use the coins King George authorized without consultation of the Irish Parliament, to colonial America which was not only embracing the Tired, the Poor, the Huddled masses yearning to breathe free; but also the cast off coins of the Mother countries to help maintain monetary order under the explosive growth it was experiencing. An interesting aside, Sir Isaac Newton was the Master of the British Mint from 1700-1727.
This is an amazing opportunity to own a coin minted over 50 years before America Declared its Independence from the British!
