William III and Mary, 1689-1694. Tin Farthing, 1691.

William III and Mary, 1689-1694. Tin Farthing, 1691.

  • Tin Halfpennies and Farthings were becoming increasingly unpopular by the end of the 17th century. This was because the public felt that there was no intrinsic value in the coins, and also the coins were prone to corrosion problems. In 1694, just before Queen Marys death from illness, a copper Farthing was minted, this ended the production of tin issue coinage in England.

     

    This Farthing shows the portrait of King William III and Mary right, the reverse Britannia seated. The date in exerge below Britannia is mainly visible, some of the edge lettering is clear.
