George VI, Festival of Britain Farthing Uncirculated, 1951

Now some 66 years old and in Uncirculated condition with lustre

In 1951 the country celebrated the end of austerity after World War II with the Festival of Britain. This exhibition was held on the South Bank in London and the Royal Mint even issued a special crown for the event.

But we have the 1951 Festival of Britain Farthing in Brilliant Uncirculated on offer. Remember that the King would tragically die the next year, so this is the penultimate George VI Farthing. They have a wren on one side and the uncrowned bust of the King on the other side

They are now some 66 years old and in Uncirculated condition, not bad for the smallest coin issued at the time.
