In 1953 the Royal Mint issued a Farthing for the Queen’s Coronation, in 1954 they changed the legend slightly. You have a youthful portrait of the Queen on one side and a wren on the other side. The Farthing as a denomination was discontinued just two years later in 1956.
The 1954 Farthing is one of only three dates with this legend and all the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. A Farthing was the smallest denomination issued for regular usage and there were 960 of them to the Pound.
