1797 Cartwheel Penny George III Britannia by Boulton & Watt's Soho Mint Birmingham - Reverse

One of the first coins which Boulton supplied for circulation in Britain, showcasing how much more efficiently he could make coins compared with the moribund Royal Mint in London. A great example of the Industrial Revolution.
