Very nice video and 2 reale. I have never heard the term dump issue. What exactly is the meaning of that?

/dʌmp/ Show Spelled[duhmp] Show IPA
verb (used with object) 1. to drop or let fall in a mass;

Soon after the accession of King George I (17141727) the surplus of copper coins was used up, and in 1717 a new contract was signed and a Royal Warrant issued for the production of a new halfpenny. The halfpennies struck in 1717 and 1718 looked slightly odd as they were smaller, thicker and somewhat lighter than the previous issues, weighing 9.410.3 grams with a diameter of 2527 millimetres, but they were well-struck with high-relief features of the right-facing head of King George and the inscription GEORGIVS REX on the obverse, and Britannia with the inscription BRITANNIA and the date in the exergue beneath Britannia. The 17171718 issue is known as the dump halfpenny. For the 17191724 issue, the size of the coin was increased to 2629 millimetres, though with the same weight of metal as before.
