South Africa Farthing (1/4 Penny)  1923 to 1960
South Africa Farthing (1/4 Penny) 1923 to 1960

Like all British coins, the reigning monach appears on the 'heads' side. In the case of the South African farthing, Kings George V and George VI appear, then Queen Elizabeth. The back 'tails' side has the two bird pattern on all coins.

The older versions of the coins can command decent collector value, but modern coins are worth very little. Here are some approximate catalog values. Use our Terminology page to properly interpret these values and convert them to actual buy and sell prices.

1923 to 1938:
worn: $3 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved (like our picture): $8
fully uncirculated: $15

After 1938:
worn: less than $1 US dollar catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved (like our picture): $2
fully uncirculated: $6

There are a few special dates in this series. In the list below, values are catalog prices in average circulated condition:

1930: $100
