Old half pennies from Ireland, annotated with HIBERNIA and the reigning monarch, are highly sought collectibles. The George II coins run from 1736 to 1760, and are generally more rare than the George III coins of 1766 to 1782.
Here are some typical catalog values for George II coins:
1736 to 1738, and 1747 to 1760
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $60
well preserved: $150
1741 to 1746
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
averge circulated: $100
well preserved: $200
The coin in our picture is well preserved and has a few light distractions known as 'planchet defects.' It is on sale at Münzenversand Claus & Barbara Hardelt GbR for 175 euros, about $250 US dollars.
If you wanted to sell your coin to Claus & Hardelt, or any other reputable dealer, he or she would probably pay about one-half the retail value. The dealer mark-up keeps the dealership afloat.
