    1777 Great Britain Half Penny Fantasy Piece
    The first issue of halfpennies did not come until 10 years after King George III (1760–1820) accession in 1770. Counterfeiting was rampant, and in 1771 the issuance of counterfeit copper coin became a felony. The next twenty years or so the majority of so-called 'copper coins' in circulation were forgeries.
