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 Important Terminology link (at the upper left) 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
1933: $2000
1934: $2000
1936: $1000

Coin: 4968 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

First estimate the amount of wear (worn, average, well preserved) for each coin. Then use the values shown on this page. Add the values of your four coins together to get the total price. - CoinQuest (Paul)
