Great Britain Farthing, Half Penny, and Penny  1911 to 1936
Great Britain Farthing, Half Penny, and Penny 1911 to 1936

George V was King of Great Britain between 1910 and 1936. His likeness appears on these copper, small-denomination coins: farthing, half penny, and penny. There are 4 farthings in a penny.

Miss Britannia is on the reverse side. She is the British national symbol of valor, virtue and integrity.

These coins are a little too plentiful to command much collector value, although some of the earlier dates, especially in pennies, are hard to find in well preserved condition. Here are some approximate catalog values.

FARTHINGS 1911 TO 1918
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $25

FARTHINGS 1919 TO 1936

fully uncirculated: $10

HALF PENNIES 1911 TO 1936
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

PENNIES 1911 TO 1926
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2

pennies dated 1918H, 1918KN, 1919H (must have mint marks) are more rare and catalog around $325 in well preserved condition
pennies dated 1919KN are very rare and catalog at $850 in well preserved condition

PENNIES 1927 TO 1936

average circulated: $1
well preserved: $8
fully uncirculated: $25
pennies dated 1932 are somewhat more rare and worth about twice these values
pennies dated 1933 are essentially non-existent; if you can find one, it is worth tens of thousands of dollars

As always on CoinQuest, we quote above catalog values. These values are not the actual buy and sell values for these coins. Use our Important Terminology page to understand how catalog value works.
