Copper Penny Tavestock Coin 1811 BI-230
Our Copper Penny Tavestock Coin 1811 is a Replica of a British Penny Token ** Made from copper. This was a privately issued token and the coin had no official legal tender value. This penny is typical of tokens of the period having a local view on one side. This particular view is of the Devon Mines in southern England. Each of our replica historic coins will satisfy the needs of living history groups and coin collectors. These coins are semi-replica hammered coins that really do look and feel authentic. Weights, alloys, and fineness are kept close to the originals making these replica medieval coins the best on the market. Original coins are carefully analyzed to determine engraving techniques used to recreate the dies in fine detail. To assure that these coins are not mistaken as the real thing, the legend is slightly altered to distinguish these coins for what they are. Additionally, an example of each replica coin is held by Museums for reference.
