1781 US Colonial Irish Hibernia Copper Halfpenny
Description:

1781 US Colonial Irish Hibernia Copper Halfpenny well circulated here in the American Colonies.

 

The new American country, United States of America, did not have sufficiently federally minted coins for circulation until the early 1800's.  Even in 1793 to 1814 or so, there were not enough US coins to go around so imports like this Irish copper were widely accepted.  

In about 1816 or so, the new United States of America finally started to produce enough local legal tender coins for Americn trade.

Irish halfpennies are much much scarcer than English coppers in what were the 13 Colonies.

For every one Irish, I probably see hundreds of English halfpennies, both English Regal and non-Regal.
