Obverse: Has a portrait of King George V by Sir Edgar B. Mackennal
Reverse: The words „ONE PENNY“ within a circle designed by W.H.J Blakemore
A die crack occurs when a die, after being subjected to immense pressure during the minting process, cracks, causing a small gap in the die. If this damaged die cointinues to produce coins, the metal will fill into the crack, thus revealing a raised line of metal in the finished coin. Specimens with more prominent die cracks can command a high premium and are valued greatly by some collectors.
There were in total 5 varites of One Penny coins minted between 1911 and 1966 when decimalisation occured.
