Ireland 1 Penny  1971 to 2000
Ireland 1 Penny 1971 to 2000

The coin in our photograph is a special proof coin made especially for collectors. Most Irish one penny coins do not look so spiffy -- they looks like plain old copper coins. As with all modern issues made of non-precious metal, this coin is worth very little:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $1

I think the bird on the coin is a stylized peacock, but the artist overran the bounds of his or her artistic license.

Coin: 18554 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

Requester description: 1980 Includes a harp on the date side and a bizarre picture of some kind of strings with a bird head on the denomination side. It almost looks like one of those little tassels on a fancy American Flag or on a curtain, but with a little swan head. 1 pound says eiRe and 1978 on one side and 1P on the other side
