Farthings

Farthings

The Farthing was a small British coin that was worth one-quarter of an old penny - 1/960th of a Pound. Farthings were minted as early as the 13th century under the reign of Edward I, although they may have been minted earlier under Henry III. It was last minted in 1956.

They are great coins to collect as they have a long history but many are inexpensive to buy. - You can see Farthings on eBay UK
