What is a Farthing from the United Kingdom worth?
Values, images, and specifications for farthing coins from the UK, Great Britain,
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, dependancies, and British colonies from 1801 to 1967.
The United Kingdom farthing obverse
features the monarch of the time, encircled
by a legend describing their titles.
Three primary reverse types were used
during this period. The first shows Britannia
facing left, the second shows Britannia
facing right, and the third shows a wren,
with the word 'FARTHING' beneath.
Farthing coins continued in to the UK era of
British history, and were circulated under all
monarchs, except Edward VIII.
The declining demand for this low denomination
eventually saw the farthing demonitised in 1960.
1 farthing = 1/4 of a penny

The first circulation issue UK farthing was
minted in 1806, and the last in 1956.
