IRELAND, George III copper token penny 1818, Luke 10/25 "Render unto Caesar ---"




Description

Copper penny token dated 1818 issued to look like an official George III penny.

Obverse : Bust right of King George III with the legend Luke XX: Chap XXV.  Reverse : Crowned Irish harp.

At first sight this piece looks like an Irish penny of George III but in fact the legend quotes the Gospel of St. Luke - "Render unto Caesar thast which is Caesar's".

The 'similarity' of the portrait to George III results in a very official looking coin - which would also have aided its general acceptance in these times of little small change and underweight privarely issued coppers 

What is very interesting is that the coin is clearly an overstrike, indicating that the 1821 piece was struck first - and also this coin was issued at or after 1821.  The reverse is from the same die as Stephens's issues (W.1845 Dublin) which feature St. Luke himself as the head of the coin.  Was this coin issued by Edward Stephens the St. James's Street hardware and builders merchant  ? .

Issued as a remedy to the dire need for small change in Ireland at the time.

Davis  17,   Withers 1915         34mm.    14.73gm.    UNCOMMON  

Good Extremely Fine, light brown even tone, unusually pretty coin for these normally badly struck private issues.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
