Description

William IV (1830-37), Proof Penny in Copper Bronze, 1831, bare head right, plain truncation, toothed borders both sides, date below, legend reads GULIELMUS IIII DEI GRATIA. Rev, Britannia seated right with trident and shield, legend surrounding, BRITANNIAR REX FID DEF, shamrock, rose and thistle emblems in exergue, (S.3845; BMC.1457).

The Pennies of William IV were struck from dies prepared by William Wyon R.A, the obverse from a bust by Sir Francis Chantrey. A simple yet effective arrangement, with a large imposing bust and sharp truncation complimented by clear legends. The reverse, equivalent in its simplicity sporting a large rendition of Britannia, emblems below in the truncation with legends surrounding. A first-rate example, superb and as struck, encapsulated and graded by NGC as Proof 65 Brown.
