The obverse displays the portrait of the current British monarch, Elizabeth II, while the reverse contains the hog, as displayed on the Sommer Island coins. The only Bermuda copper before the new decimal cent was the 1793 copper displayed in the section on the the British West Indies coppers under Bermuda

    Provenance:  Donated from the collection of Richard Staley of Orange Park, Florida on April 26, 1999.
