David R. writes: I have a very small coin that has a face and this inscription: GEORGIVS DEI GRA, the other side 1717 MAG BRI FR FT HIB REX and the denomination two below a crown. Can you tell me more and is it worth anything?
The Coin is a silver twopence (pronounced tuppence) of George I of England. The obverse legend is Latin for “George By The Grace of G-d”. The reverse uses an Latin abbreviation code for MAGnaeBRItanniaeFRanciaeET HIBerniaeREX, which translates to King of Britain, France and Ireland.
Values range from $10-$50 or so depending on condition.
