1917-C Newfoundland 1-Cent Large Penny Coin (VF)


Large Cents - George V (1913-1936)

In an act of 1863 Newfoundland turned to decimal currency and adopted the Spanish dollar as its unit. This made the British shilling equivalent to 24 cents and the sixpence to 12 cents.



The obverse was derived from a portrait model by G.W. De Sauless; the portrait is unusually large for the size of the coin.


The reverse design is the same as used for the Victoria series, except for the substitution of the Imperial State crown for the St. Edward's crown. The modification was made by W.H.J. Blakemore. The wreath consists of pitcher plant and oak.
