1794 Kent Halfpenny Coin/Conder (col-018)
1794 English Kent Halfpenny Conder. A shortage of small coinage in the 1790's inspired local companies, militias, and townships to create their own coins. This led to a variety of artwork on the coins, called conders as they weren't minted by the Crown.
The front image is of a pretty horse with it's forefeet off the ground.
The reverse is a shield and a lion and birds with "FOR GENERAL CONVENIENCE" around the outer edge. The reverse is slightly offset from the front.
The copper coin is set in a hand fabricated sterling silver mount.
Approx. 1 3/8" diameter.
Chains are available. See Chains.
