    Cartwheel Penny in the United States?

    I've dug my far share of British coins in the United States. This week I dug my first Cartwheel Penny. It's not in the best condition (pictured below), but it's the first one I've personally seen come out of US soil. I know they're somewhat common to find in the U.K., but not on this side of the pond. I'd love to know- Who else has dug a Cartwheel in US soil?
    Sorry if this has been previously discussed. I couldn't find a thread about it.
    Thanks,
    Kurt

    I've only seen a handful dug here. Can't recall who or when though. They are thick thick coins. Congrats on yours.
    without history, there would be no future

    Thank you Isaac! It's unbelievably thick and heavy. They weigh an ounce. Once of those coins that I always wanted to find that I doubt I had the chance to. It hit like a half dollar. We live dig it. It was an awesome reveal. Only problem the camera wasn't rolling. I'm still sick about it

    I dug one about 20 years ago at an old house site, quite a surprise!

    My opinion is that these are fairly common to find here. Remember that there were many minted, all bearing the date 1797.

    I know its not a rare coin Ben. Colonial is my passion. My question is who else has dug one in the US? How many have you dug Ben?

    If not from UK diggers, you're probably seeing them posted by Canadians. Any British coin after a 1783 Hibernia would be an uncommon find in the US.

    To the OP I wouldn't say they would be somewhat common to find in the UK... I'd say they are real common to find there. The twopence would be tougher.

    I think I recall Cru saying that they haven't found many cartwheels ,but I don't remember if that was about the one penny or two penny ,or both As huge and heavy as those are , it wouldn't surprise me if they just weren't lost all that much anywhere .

    That would be the two penny.

    Thank's - yeah those things are like two full ounces ! You'd have to try pretty hard to lose one.

    And even harder to find one! (and I did - but just one) I always laugh when someone finds the penny and calls it a "huge coin"
