The 1844 Victoria One Penny Model was a model coin issued by Birmingham medallist Joseph Moore (1817–1892) between 1844 and 1848, during a period in which the British Government were considering the notion of replacing the heavy copper coinage then in use.

Their popularity - due mainly to their convenient size (about that of the OLD NZ 10c piece) was a hit with the public - so much so that it led to the Royal Mint making a statement declaring that it was not responsible for their production thus inferring the coins were not legal tender nor WOULD they be

A feature that sets them apart from other coins of their age is that they were either bimetallic or made to LOOK bimetallic. The outer part was made of copper, and the inner part- while originally composed of silver- was symbolically supposed make up for the small intrinsic value of copper.

In most cases however the inner circle was actually 60% zinc and 40% nickel
or just plated to look like white metal

The outer ring- in which on the obverse and reverse the words are 'ONE PENNY MODEL' there is a youthful portrait of Queen Victoria obverse with the words 'VICTORIA REG', and on the reverse is showing a numeral "1"

On average these fetch about $50 on market
