The Royal Mint issued British Pound coins in 15 different denominations, including this British predecimal farthing coin. They are part of the predecimal and withdrawn Pound Sterling coins series. The Royal Mint started issuing these 0.00104 British Pound coins in 1860. They were withdrawn from circulation in 1956.
The predecimal British farthing coin weighs 2.83gr and measures 20.19mm accross. The bronze 1/4d coin, also known as ‘fourthing’, features a wren on the obverse side and the portrait of the Monarch on the reverse side. It is the equivalent of a quarter of a predecimal penny. There are 240 predecimal pennies to the pound, meaning that a British farthing is the equivalent of 1/960 of a Pound Sterling.
