Farthing Coins of the Isle of Man


With a weight of 72 grains, this farthing (along with the penny and halfpenny) was the last series of coins struck which had the arms (the triune) and motto (QVOCVNQVE IECERIS STABIT) of the Island on them. This was the only farthing struck for the Island. The motto translates to "Whichever way you throw it, it will stand".
