William IV became king in 1830 at age 62 after the death of

his brother (George IV), who had no surviving heirs.


Dubbed 'the sailor king' for his naval service in his

younger years, William had not expected to be King.

William did not marry, due primarily to the Royal Marriages

Act of 1772, which forbade decendants of George II from

marriage without consent from the monarch, or privy council.

William did have a defacto relationship producing many

children, none of which were considered legitimate, so had

no claim on the throne.


1 farthing = 1/4 of a penny = 1/48 of a shilling

= 1/960 of a pound


The first King William IV era UK farthing was minted

in 1831, and the last in 1837.


Dates not minted: 1830, 1832, 1833
