P. Scott Rubin
: The 1733 Rosa Americana Proof Twopence struck in Copper is an extremely rare coin with only four or five specimens known. This coin was not struck under the agreement reached with King George I of England, which gave permission for William Wood to issue Halfpence, One Pence and Two Pence coins for the British Colonies of North American in the early 1720’s.
The 1733 Rosa Americana Proof Twopence was a pattern for an attempt at inducing King George II to grant a coinage contract for America. However, nothing other than Patterns seems to have come from it.
The four known examples are all Proofs. One is in the British Museum Collection. The other three are in private collections.
