George III Penny
1806-1808
There were two different obverses and two different
reverses issued.

The pennies of George III were all struck in Soho,
Birmingham by Matthew Boulton. The word SOHO can be
seen below Britannia's shield.

In 1797 Matthew Boulton invented the "cartwheel penny" to
 try and combat the huge amount of fakes circulating at the
time.  He proposed and struck these coins to contain their
exact value in copper.

Both the obverses and reverses were by Conrad Heinrich
Küchler.

There is only one 1808 dated penny known to exist.
