Queen Victoria era penny values - United Kingdom

Queen Victoria

Victoria became Queen in 1837 after the death of her

uncle (William IV), who had no legitimate heirs.


Victoria was the longest reigning British monarch at

nearly 64 years, until topped by Elizabeth II in 2015.


Victoria married Albert in 1840. The pair had 9 children,

who went on to marry in to royalty across Europe.

Victoria entered a protracted period of mourning

following Albert's death in 1861, lasting many years.

The Victorian era was one of dramatic change and

development in industry, science, culture, and politics.


1 penny  = 1/12 of a shilling = 1/240 of a pound


The first Victorian era UK penny was minted

in 1839, and the last in 1901.

The Queen Victoria era United Kingdom penny

obverse features Queen Victoria facing left.


Earlier years show the 'young head', middle

years the 'bun head', and later years the

'old veiled head'.


The reverse shows the helmed Britannia

seated facing right, holding a trident, hand

resting on a shield.


In 1860 the date moves from obverse to

reverse, and the composition changes from

copper to bronze.   Further detail
