This counts as the coin for Thursday, March 31st.
United Kingdom, 1 farthing, 1943 (KM #843)
Cool old British coin. it shows George VI, whose reign covered 1936-1952, and served as the monarch of the UK during World War II. The reverse depicts a wren, a common songbird of England. For those you who aren’t familiar with the pre-decimal British coinage, there are 4 farthings in a penny, 12 pence in a shilling, and 20 shillings in a pound. That means that this coin is worth 1/960th of a pound (that’s 0.0010417), or 0.17 cents USD. That’s a very small value. No wonder the farthing denomination was discontinued due to obsolescence, with the final year of mintage in 1954.
