Title GOD / SAVE / THE QUEEN (PI-10)
Date 1797
Country England
/Catalog #
Denomination 1p
Description English penny, 1797. Very interesting example of 19th century Loyalist sentiment expressed on a very old coin. The devices and slogans are applied by what seems to be some type of roller die. Though the coin is heavily worn and there's weakness displayed in some of the devices, there doesn't appear to be any significant wear on the inscriptions. These conditions lead me to believe they were added in more recent times. ?God Save the Queen? would apply only Victoria or Elizabeth. As the era of Queen Elizabeth II is so recent, the reference is likely to Queen Victoria. The seller found it among a lot of old counterstamped English 1 and 2p coins he acquired from an auction in the UK. In 2016. Purchased from Mike Lobban / Boone, N. Carolina, USA. (Ag. 8, 2018) ($18).
