George VI, Farthing (Festival of Britain) 1951 Unc

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.

George VI, Farthing 1947 Unc

King George VI, the Queen’s Father, had a short but turbulent reign. After all we had World War II, silver was taken out of our coinage and the British Empire was starting to break up. We have uploaded onto the website all the King George VI Farthings that we have in stock in Uncirculated condition. In all honesty, some are Brilliant Uncirculated, which is better than Uncirculated, but we are going to sell them all at one price. When your order arrives, we will give you the best grade that we have in stock. On offer here is the 1947 Farthing. This is a great series of coins and the smallest coin issued by King George VI, they were struck in bronze and in Uncirculated.
