STORY OF THE ENGLISH PENNY. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 30 January 1903
STORY OF THE ENGLISH PENNY. There is no earlier mention of English pennies then that of A.)., 688, says a waiter in,,to. " english Illustrated..

On thie obverse the monuarch's head and name usually appear, while the reverse sllows a cross, and records the town where the coin was ionted,and the name very often of the moneyer. Every important town is recorded upon one penny or another, and local mints, though diminishing in numbers, continued to issue coins down to the time of Queen Anne, when the one at the Tower was alone authorised to do so. The early pounies of Victoria weae coppers, and a good story Is told of on old wonmn in tile North of Scot land who continued after the introduction of the lighter bronze coinage in 1860 to weigh the sweets she sold against the pennius of the children wie bought them. One can well imagine the strenuous endeavours made by the youngsters to g...
