    More Information About Edward VII Farthing's
    The first British Farthing's were minted during the Reign of Queen Anne in 1714, and  ceased circulation in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth II 1960. Farthings ceased being minted in 1956 due to lack of demand and in 1960 they were demonetized altogether bringing and end to 246 years of Farthing's being in circulation.

    Farthing's were struck during Edward VII Reign from 1902 until 1910. Their were differing varieties of Farthing in Edward VII Reign but they all had the same diameter of 20 millimetres, weight of 2.821 grams and were made of a bronze alloy of alloy of 95% copper 4% tin and 1% zinc which was the same bronze alloy used in Victoria's Farthing's .

    The obverse was designed by  George William De Saulles. In keeping with tradition his portrait faces to the right, in the opposite direction to his predecessor. Edward's portrait depicts him with a bare head.

    The reverse was designed by  George William De Saulles. The reverse device is of Britannia seated holding a Trident in her left hand and her right hand is resting on a shield emblazoned with a Union Flag
