Soho Mint - A World First!

Soho’s Third Official Coinage - The Coppers of 1806-7

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.
