Edward VII, Farthing, 1905

In 1905 King Edward VII was on the throne, finally having taken over from his late mother, Queen Victoria. Arthur Balfour is Prime Minister and Chelsea has just been elected to the Football League. The GPO had just gotten rid of horse-drawn carriages to deliver the mail from London to Brighton and replaced them with Motor Lorries. The 1st public protest by a suffragette took place and Alf Common became the first £1000 football transfer. The Farthing was the smallest denomination regularly issued. You had the King’s bare head on one side and a seated Britannia on the other side. We can offer you the King Edward VII Farthing in Fine condition for your collection.

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Unc, 1955

The 1955 Wren Farthing was the penultimate, or the next to last Farthing to ever be struck. In 1956 the last ever Farthing was struck. For some reason, this penultimate Farthing is rather difficult to find in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You have the youthful bust of Queen Elizabeth II on one side, remember that she only came to the throne in 1952, and on the other side you have a beautiful little wren. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now some 63 years old. For those of you too young to remember, there were 240 Pennies to the Pound and 4 Farthings to the Penny. So that a pound’s worth of Farthings would have been 960 coins. Don’t we wish we had the money and had put them away at the time?

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1953

In 1953 the Royal Mint issued new coins for the new Queen, Elizabeth II. But the legend was different from all the coins that were to come, so that the 1953 coins and the Farthing in particular are one year type coins. This is important because there were only 4 dates of Elizabeth II Farthings ever issued, 1956 being the last date of issue. Because the 1953 Coronation Farthing is a one year type, it is also the most difficult one to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We bought a group that had been put away in 1953, some 65 years ago and had lain undisturbed until now. Add a one year type, 1953 Coronation Farthing in Brilliant Uncirculated to your collection, they are not easy to get.

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1956

In 1956 the Royal Mint issued the last Farthing ever! I guess that it was too low of a denomination to be of any use. We have a nice small group of Brilliant Uncirculated 1956 Queen Elizabeth II Farthings. These are the last Farthing to ever be struck. The Mint didn’t make a lot of them and they are the most difficult date of Queen Elizabeth II to find. Get them while you can, remember there were 4 to a Penny and 960 to the pound. These are now 63 years old and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

George V, Farthing (Mint Darkened),1916

During World War One the Royal Mint darkened the Farthings they issued. This was because they felt that bright coins would cause reflection and allow the enemy to shoot at those with bright coins. To find these coins in Uncirculated condition is rare, as they quickly rubbed on the high points and became circulated. We just bought a group of nice Uncirculated examples that were put away in 1916, 102 years ago. The Monarch is, of course, King George V and the Farthing was the smallest denomination at the time. A very difficult coin to find in such a high grade. The current catalogue price is £20.00 and you would be lucky to find them at that price. But we bought 50 examples put away 102 years ago and we are going to sell them for what we think is a reasonable price or just £14.95, but once these 50 pieces are gone who knows where we will find any more...

George V, Farthing 1921 Brilliant Uncirculated

In 1921 George V was our Monarch and he had celebrated the 10th anniversary of his Coronation (1911-1921). The smallest and most used coin of this year was the bronze Farthing. You have the bare head of King George V facing left on the obverse and the reverse has the seated figure of Britannia. For some reason, the 1921 in high grades is most difficult to get. After all, it is almost 100 years old. Available here in Brilliant Uncirculated. It has been a long time since we have seen such nice examples of this scarce date of Farthings.

George V, Farthing, 1936 Uncirculated

1936 was the year that King George V died, his son became Edward VIII and then abdicated so his brother could become King George VI, the father of our own Queen, Elizabeth II. All of the Farthings issued in 1936 carried the portrait of King George V and the Farthing was the lowest denomination made at the time. The Depression was still blowing cold air and a Farthing would still buy you something. Here we present the last George V Farthing in Uncirculated condition.

George VI, Farthing 1937-48 BU

In 1937, the farthing went through its first major redesign since it’s introduction in 1672 under Charles II. For the first time in 264 years, Britannia was to be replaced on the reverse by one of Britain’s smallest birds – the Wren. This new design, first introduced on the Edward VIII pattern was also adopted on the farthings of George VI. Here we present the 1937-48 in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Dates will be of our choice.
