The Obverse of a Penny of the ThirdCoinage, 1806-7
Engraved by Küchler, struck at Soho
The size and weight of Soho’sthird coinage remained the official standard until the
introduction of bronze coinage in the 1860s. By this time, the enormous number of
Boulton pieces still in circulation were well worn, such as this example. Without
doubt, Boulton would have been very gratified that his coins were still in use, fifty
years and more after they had been struck.
