Remember Britannia from the Penny? Possibly the most iconic coin ever issued in the United Kingdom. Such is the power of the design it was used for nearly 300 years spanning the reign of sixteen monarchs.
It is why they have been the starting point of so many amazing coin collections over the years, and why they are ideal to keep in the family for future generations.
Your collection of FIVE HISTORIC PENNIES
The Britannia Penny was so popular it stayed the same size for over a century. And this makes it the ideal way to compare the portraits of our last five monarchs.
With the Queen Victoria and King Edward VII pennies now both guaranteed to be at least 100 years old, your new collection of pennies is a nostalgic link to the past and the glory days of the British Empire.
Queen Victoria's 'old head' portrait, shown here on the penny, is the only time a UK monarch appears veiled on our currency - in honour of the passing of Prince Albert. And the George VI penny was the last time the title IND IMP (Emperor of India) appeared on our coinage - as the era of the British Empire slowly drew to a close.
