Best Answer

Due to Britains ongoing expenses with various wars in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, there were very few silver or copper coins minted.

The 1790's was not a great decade for British coin production by the Royal Mint.

Any 1790's British coin featuring George III on the obverse and Britannia on the reverse would be a copper -

1797 (cartwheel) Twopence (41mm in diameter)

1797 (cartwheel) Penny (36mm in diameter)

1799 Halfpenny (31mm in diameter)

1799 Farthing (23.5 in diameter)

If your coin does not fall into any of these categories, you possibly have a privately minted tokens or counterfeit coin.

To get an estimate of value on a privately minted token, you need to provide the details of the inscription on the token.
