The half farthing was minted exclusively

for colonial use in Ceylon until 1842, when

it was also made legal tender in the UK.


1 half farthing = 1/2 of a farthing

= 1/8 of a penny = 1/96 of a shilling

= 1/1,920 of a pound


The first circulation issue United Kingdom

half farthing was minted in 1828, and

the last in 1856, before being demonitised

in the UK in 1869.

The United Kingdom half farthing obverse

features the monarch of the time, encircled

by a legend describing their titles.


Three reverse types were used, the first

showing Britannia seated, the second

showing the words 'HALF FARTHING' with

the royal crown above, and the date and

a small rose below, and the third replacing

the rose with a rose, thistle, and shamrock.
