The William IV era groat was minted exclusively
for use in British Guiana, as was the 1888 groat.
From 1838 the fourpence was also circulated
in the United Kingdom itself.
The fourpence was also one of the Maundy
denominations, although reverse design is the
same as other Maundy coinage, with their own
mintages and values, so are listed separately.
1 fourpence = 4 pennies
= 1/3 of a shilling = 1/60 of a pound
The first circulation issue UK fourpence was
minted in 1836, and the last in 1888.
The United Kingdom fourpence obverse
features the monarch of the time, encircled
by a legend describing their titles.
The groat reverse shows the helmed
Britannia seated facing right, holding a
trident, hand resting on a shield.
To the left is the word 'FOUR', to the right
'PENCE', and below is the date.
