1943 Half Penny

George VI


The 1943 is one of the easiest dates in the series with a high mintage of almost 34 million pieces and a small number of mint rolls surfacing. The date is almost always struck without significant flaws allowing for higher grade mint state pieces but by this stage the obverse dies were already quite worn and as such often lack central detail.

The year is available right up to MS65RD(PCGS Population Chart, 2012)though it is somewhat scarce above MS64. Collectors should aim for at least MS64RD with a good number of examples available.
