British new 1/2 pence, 1972. One side of the coin has a crown in the centre above 1/2 with "NEW PENNY" over top. On the other side is a side profile of Queen Elizabeth II and the words "D. G. REG. F. D. 1972/ ELIZABETH II." The "2" in 1972 has a bright spot on it which makes it difficult to read; it may also be a "3."
