This is a really nice 1723 Wood's Hibernia Halfpenny. 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. Because of this, a number of these were sent to America. This is an amazing opportunity to own a coin used in the United States as legal tender, before America declared its independence and issued its own currency.
