Elizabeth II, Farthing 1956 Uncirculated

The first Farthing was issued during the reign of King Edward I 1272-1307 and it was struck in Silver. The last ever Farthing was struck in 1956 under Queen Elizabeth II and was struck in bronze. In fact, there were only four farthings issued under Queen Elizabeth II. The 1956 Farthing is the most difficult of the four dates to get. It has the Queen on the obverse and the wren on the reverse. Demand of late has increased and so has the cost of buying them. Lucky that we had some in stock so we can keep our prices more reasonable. We have them in two grades Uncirculated with touches of lustre and Brilliant Uncirculated in either case they are the last Farthing ever to be issued and an important coin worthy of your collection.

Elizabeth II, Farthing 1955 Brilliant Unc

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?

George VI, Complete Halfpenny Collection 1937-52

George VI Complete Halfpenny Collection 1937-52

King George VI, was of course the father of our current Monarch Queen Elizabeth II. He kept the country on an even keel during World War Two and took over when his brother Edward VIII abdicated. Of the three bronze coins issued, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing, without doubt the hardest to find is the Halfpenny. A friend of ours took several years to put together these complete date collections of George VI halfpennies 1937-1952. The Coronation year was 1937 and he passed in 1952. There are a total of 16 coins in the date collection, one for each year of his reign. All coins are in selected circulated condition and it would be very difficult to make up these sets today. Coronation, World War Two and every year that he was on the throne. You get all 16 coins in selected circulated condition for just £14.95 that is less than £1 a coin, but supplies are limited.
