British Farthing - Genuine Bronze Coin Walking Stick Mount Badge

Britainís tiniest coin had a history stretching back to the 13th century. Until then people would cut a penny into two or four pieces to obtain a smaller coin. The reverse of the coin since 1936 was the wren, Britainís smallest bird, which remained there to the end. By 1956 it was apparent that due to inflation the farthing had outlived its usefulness, and minting ceased after that year. The farthing ceased to be legal tender after 31 December 1960.

  • The coin is expertly curved by hand to form a Walking Stick Mount Badge.
  • Measures approximately 3/4" inches (20.19 mm) in diameter, and weighs 2.83 grams.
  • It is shaped to fit a 7/8 to 1 1/8" inch diameter shaft.
  • Comes complete with Badge Fitting Instructions and nails for mounting.
