I have this one and half penny coin from 1843 but along with it was an 1887 coin the same size as the silver 1 1/2 penny coin with St. George slaying the dragon on the reverse which was only used?? on silver and gold coins.I cannot find an example of the second coin.

Hi geewhizz

 

Searching the interwebs, I found that these are toy/play coins made by Ludwig Christian Lauer (L : CHR : LAUER on right of obverse) in Germany. They don't seem to have much collector's value unfortunately. You can search ebay for "british toy coins" for a few other examples, or click on this link to see one just like your's being discussed on another forum.

 

Cheers
