There were two types of decimal Half Penny struck, they were basically the same except for differing reverse inscriptions. The first inscription reads NEW PENNY and was struck from 1971 to 1981. The second inscription reads HALF PENNY and was struck from 1982 to 1984.
The decimal Half Penny did not have a long life it was first struck from 1971 and was used until it was demonetised in 1984. The Half Penny was removed from circulation because of its very low value made it almost pointless and its tiny size was also very unpopular with the public.

St Edward's Crown is one of the oldest Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom and the centrepiece of the coronation regalia. Named after Edward the Confessor, it has traditionally been used to crown English and British monarchs at their coronation ceremonies. The current version was made for the coronation of Charles II in 1661.
