UK Farthings during George IV's reign had
two major designs over the period.
The 'Draped Bust' obverse of earlier years
shows the robed king, including shoulders,
while the 'Laureate Head' of later years
shows only the king's head as the effigy.
The reverse was also redesigned, the most
obvious change being the relocation of the
date from reverse to obverse, with a rose,
thistle, and shamrock below Britannia. More
George IV ascended to the throne in 1820,
after his fathers death (George III).
Prior to ascension, George IV served as Prince Regent
from 1811 until 1820, due to his fathers ill health.
Dubbed 'the first gentleman of England', he was disliked
by the general population for his extravagance and lack
of leadership during the Napoleonic wars.
