The farthing is one of the smallest demonimations of British coins, worth one quarter of a penny. They were used to buy bread, sweets, newspapers and small gifts dating back to the 1600's. Today, Prenoa features these much loved coins into necklaces and bracelets for your treasured keepsakes.

The Britannia farthing shows Britannia, ruler of the waves and seas, sitting with her shield. This was an iconic emblem of Britain dating back as far as when Britain was part of an empire. This necklace is a wonderful addition to any jewellery box - it is a piece of British history that has travelled far and wide across the UK and maybe even further before finding you.
