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!
