1941 Half Penny


The 1941 half penny, coming from a relatively high
mintage of 5,011,200 is one of the easier dates in the George VI half penny series to acquire in better grade. Several
mint rolls have surfaced of this date making examples with full
mint brilliance obtainable but even the examples from the
mint rolls tend to have slight
toning as with the illustrated example limiting the availability of coins with a
RED designation.

Most examples from the
mint rolls would slab from MS63 to MS64
Red-Brown and finding one that will slab
RED or higher than MS64 can be quite a challenge. The strike of this particular date isn't quite as intense as the 1940 (1940 Half Penny) typically is but the strike is rarely problematic ensuring a high average grade for
mint state pieces.
