Veiled or 'Widow' Head Penny In 1895 the last series of the bronze penny, designed by Sir Thomas Brock 1847 - 1922 was introduced. By this time Victoria was in her seventy-sixth year & had been widowed for fifteen years, this final bronze coinage portrait is often referred to as the widow or also simply 'Old' head. By and large the mintage figures tend to be higher for this series than the earlier 'Bun' pennies.
