21mm Britannia Moneta / Cincinatti Salesman etc Bronze

This piece was struck on one of the Cincinnati presses installed at Llantrisant and set up for the initial striking of the New Penny. The only possible time the die-pairing could have existed is at the Royal Mint, as the ‘Britannia Moneta’ dies are never allowed to leave the facility; the Cincinnati die would have been brought in to the Mint, used to set up the press and demonstrate that the die was correctly set, as part of the commissioning process, then removed from the site when Cincinnati’s engineers left
