Dance InformationThe British farthing (derived from the Anglo-Saxon feorthing, a fourthling or fourth part) was a coin of the Kingdom of Great Britain, a new sovereign state created in 1707 by merging the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland, and later a coin of the United Kingdom, worth one quarter of a penny, a continuation of the English farthing first minted in silver in the 13th century.
