Farthing Coins of Jersey


The first coinage of a farthing coin (or rather a coin equivalent to a farthing) in the Baliwick of Jersey was in 1841. The coin was denominated in terms of the shilling rather than in pence. When first introduced there were 13 pence to the shilling, thus the 1/52nd Shilling piece was the equivalent of the farthing. Later, in 1877, the number of pence to the shilling changed to the standard 12, and the farthing was thus 1/48th of a shilling.
