A farthing is a quarter of a penny and was last struck in Great Britain in 1956. More information about British farthing varieties can be found in the book Varieties of British Bronze Farthings 1860-1956.

Other Commonwealth countries including South Africa and Jamaica also used farthings, though unlike higher denominations it was not as prolific.
