The value of the King Edward VII farthing British coin has a value range of between £2.00 and £20.00 depending on condition, according to the www.myfarthings.co.uk website.

Searching for 1907 farthings on eBay would appear to reinforce this valuation, with several coins of this description being sold within this price range. More details and photographs of the 1907 King Edward VII farthing are viewable at www.myfarthings.co.uk/EdwardVII1907.html
The King Edward VII farthing had the following properties:
• Diameter - 20 mm
• Weight - 2.834 g

On the obverse side, Edward VII's bust is facing right with the following legend written:

EDWARDVS VII DEI GRA: BRITT: OMN: REX FID: DEF: IND: IMP (Edward VII by the Grace of God, King of all the Britains, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India).

On the reverse side, there is a seated Britannia facing to the right holding a shield and trident. The word 'FARTHING' is written above, with the year '1907' written below.

4,399,360 of these coins were minted. They were chemically darkened in order to avoid them being confused for half sovereigns, which had a very similar size.

King Edward VII of the United Kingdom was born on 9 November 1841 and reigned for 9 years and 4 months between 9 August 1902 and his death on 6 May 1910. He was the son of Queen Victoria and was heir apparent to the throne for longer than any of his predecessors. Edward VII was the first British monarch from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, which was renamed as the House of Windsor by his son King George V.
