A late Georgian/early Victorian era British four pence love token engraved ‘Father’.

The other side depicts the seated figure of Britannia. Unfortunately the year has worn, so we cannot be certain of it’s age (its appears to be from 1830s from what can be read).

The four pence was minted 1836-1855 before it was discontinued in favour of the three pence coin, however in 1888 a special variety was minted for use in British Guiana and the British West Indies.

Why we love it

We love the crisp engraving and interior scallop edge detail.

The British fourpence coin is sometimes known as a groat, or alternatively a joey after the MP Joseph Hume who spoke in favour of its introduction.
