HC Deb 09 December 1912 vol 45 c38
68. Captain FABER

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will consider the advisability of reissuing the old fourpenny pieces with a view to avoiding the abnormal use of copper coins owing to the Insurance Tax demands?


I do not think it would be convenient or desirable to reintroduce the old 4d. piece, which would be very liable to confusion with the 3d. piece.
