1928 Penny

1928 Canadian Penny
The 1928 penny I found today is the oldest coin I have sound so far. It was about 10 feet from the front corner of my house very near where I found the Tootsie Toy Submarine last fall.

King George was the second born son of King Edward VII and grandson of Queen Victoria. When his older brother died in 1892, he became second in line to the throneΒ  of England and later became Prince of Wales when his father became king at the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. In 1910 he became the king of England and reigned until his death in 1936. Two of his sons became King prior to his granddaughter becoming Queen Elizabeth.
