1760 Voce Populi Halfpenny. P below bust. MS64 PCGS.
The finest known Specimen. Attractive medium brown color with smooth surfaces and sharp strike. Well centered and above average quality for coins in this series. As usual, only a portion of the “P” is shown below the bust.

There is no evidence that these tokens which are clearly identified as being made for Hibernia (Ireland) ever circulated in America. They have long been included in collections of Colonial American coins partly because of the legend Voce Populi (the voice of the people) that is seen on other coins of that period.
