It is the only Copper "Halfpenny" issued for "William & Mary" of England, and as such is a one year type. Tin Halfpennys had been issued, but they corroded and the public disliked them. In 1694 Tin was abandoned and Copper returned. William & Mary were King and Queen of Great Britain from "The Glorious Revolution" of 1688 until Mary died of smallpox on December 28, 1694, this year. Then William ruled alone until his death on March 8, 1702. William and Mary were first cousins. King James I (of the "King James Bible") was grandfather to both of them. Mary was the Protestant Daughter of the Catholic King, James II of England. She married the Protestant William of Orange, at that time ruler of the Netherlands. When her Father, James II, began trying to bring England back to the Roman Church, the people arose, and the result was “The Glorious Revolution” of 1688, where William was invited to invade England and James fled to France, to begin the long series of “Jacobin” efforts to regain the Crown. The famous "William & Mary College" in Williamsburg, Virginia was founded in 1693 at the personal instigation of Queen Mary. It is the second oldest institute of higher learning in the United States. The coin has been professionally graded and authenticated by the most prestigious third party grading firm, the "Professional Coin Grading Service" or PCGS, as Extremely Fine or XF 40.

English Copper was stipulated in the authorization and it turned out to be difficult to strike. To make it more malleable, the planchets were made by pouring the molten metal into moulds Reverse: BRITANNIA. • 1694 in exergue. • Britannia seated left, with shield, holding spray (of leaves) and spear. Collecting Britannia: "Britannia" has been on coins since the Roman Emperor Hadrian first placed her there about the time he was building his famous wall across Britain, circa 120 AD. And those coins are rare. The first "English" depiction of their national lady was on the 1672 Farthings and Halfpennies of Charles II. And those coins are available, mostly in low grade however. The first basic design lasted through the reigns of Charles II, James II, William & Mary and William alone. The first of many redesigns was under Queen Anne. She makes a truly fascinating collection. Front of the holder. Back of the holder. The Coin: A simple beautiful example for one of these. Not a tremendously rare date but extraordinarily rare in this condition. And the coin carries such interesting and important history, the stories go on and on. Even though it has been professionally graded, that is only an opinion, and as grading is subjective, so please see the pictures and judge for yourself. Remember, FREE SHIPPING to the USA!
