Druid's Head Pub logo

Postby skydove » 20 Aug 2010, 18:48

My husband John was reading an old AA book, The Illustrated Guide to Britain's Coast when he shouted me and said 'here's that old druid's head coin on your druid grove message board. I had a look and low and behold it was, under an article about the town of Amlwch. This town is situated high on the north coast of Anglesey. It said that at the beginning of the last century it was the busiest and most prosperous part of Anglesey with up to 1,500 men women and even children working high on the lunar industrial landscape of the nearby Parys Mountain to produce 80,000 tons of top grade copper ore a year. So good was the copper that when the country ran short of copper coinage at the end of the 18th century the Parys Mountain copper company minted its own coinage, 250 tons of pennies and 50 tons of halfpennies, each with the company's initials on one side and a druid's head on the other - notably our druids head coin of the logo!
