Great Britain Penny  1937 to 1951
Great Britain Penny 1937 to 1951

These modern pennys are nice coins, but worth very little. Not much more than face value. The one in the picture has good eye appeal, so a collector might pay $3 or $4 US dollars for it. With less appeal, $1 will do it for most dates. Coins dated 1950 and 1951 are somewhat rare, with catalog values pushed up toward $10 in average circulated condition.

Coin: 1195 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

Requester description: 1938 On one side: A picture of a soldier with a roman helmet, a septor with three prongs, wearing a toga and sitting on a british shield. to the left of the soldier it says 'ONE' to the right it says 'PENNY'. On the left side of the soldier, their is a lighthouse, but on the right, there is no ship!, just open water. on the back side: a picture of a man, and around him it says (from left to right), 'GEORGIVS VI D:G:BR:OMN:REX F:D:IND:IMP.' I know it's a british farthing, but I thought it was peculiar that there was a lighthouse, but no ship!

I have a penny that is 1937 dated just like this picture. I would like to find where I may check the value and it's worth and more history. Will be glad to here stories about this find, I inherited it from my uncle.

i have this coin but it is a one sided coin no date on it its the side with the mans head not the half penny side i was wondering is it worth money ?? ,i just thought it was strange to have no date on it and one side of the coin flat with nothing on it
Coins are made by pressing a 'coin blank' between to hard metal 'dies' at extremely high pressure. The dies contain the patterns for the front and back of the coin. It is not possible to make a coin without front and back patterns. Your coin, most likely, was altered after it left the mint. People like to grind down coins to test their machinery. - CoinQuest (Paul)
