Picture of Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1956

Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1956

In 1956 the Royal Mint issued the last Farthing ever! I guess that it was too low of a denomination to be of any use. We have a nice small group of Brilliant Uncirculated 1956 Queen Elizabeth II Farthings. These are the last Farthing to ever be struck. The Mint didn’t make a lot of them and they are the most difficult date of Queen Elizabeth II to find. Get them while you can, remember there were 4 to a Penny and 960 to the pound. These are now 63 years old and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
