The 1944 UK penny obverse features the

bare head of King George VI facing left,

with the surrounding legend:

‘GEORGIVS VI D:G:BR:OMN:REX

F:D:IND:IMP.’

 

The reverse shows Britannia seated facing right,

wearing a helmet, holding a trident, hand resting

on a shield, with the words ‘ONE PENNY’ in the

fields, and date below.  A lighthouse is in the background to the left of Britannia.
