A copper-alloy post-medieval Irish 'hibernia' halfpenny of James II, dating to AD 1691. HIBERNIA reverse, depicting Hibernia seated left and holding a cross.

The name 'hibernias' for this coin type comes from the fact that they are the first coins on which the reverse dep…

A copper alloy 'Gun Money' shilling of James II. These coins were issued in Ireland during the Williamite war of 1689 -1691, and were made from recycled metals, with the notion that they could be redeemed for face value after a Jacobite victory.
