Coins of the United Kingdom
Great Britain, William IV, 26 June 1830 - 20 June 1837

|United| |Kingdom|, |Great| |Britain,| |William| |IV,| |26| |June| |1830| |-| |20| |June| |1837|, |penny|
William IV was the third son of George III and younger brother and successor to George IV, he was the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain's House of Hanover. He was nicknamed the "Sailor King" because he served in the Royal Navy in his youth. He served in North America and the Caribbean. Since his two older brothers died without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne at 64 years old. His reign saw reforms: the poor law was updated, child labor restricted, slavery abolished in nearly all the Empire, and the electoral system was reformed. Although William did not engage in politics as much as his brother or his father, he was the last monarch to appoint a prime minister contrary to the will of Parliament. He granted his German kingdom a short-lived liberal constitution. At the time of his death, William had no surviving legitimate children, but he was survived by eight of the ten illegitimate children he had by the actress Dorothea Jordan, with whom he cohabited for twenty years. William was succeeded in the United Kingdom by his niece, Victoria, and in Hanover by his brother, Ernest Augustus.

Oddly, this coin is dated prior to the July 19, 1821 Coronation of George IV. George III died January 29, 1820. Almost all other rulers of the United Kingdom began their coinage after the date of their coronation. (Another exception is Edward VIII, whose mint struck coins dated 1937, the year of a coronation that never took place.) Of the coinage of George IV, only the half-crown is from 1820.
