The United Kingdom is the union of the Kingdom of England (which already included Wales as a principality) with the Kingdom of Scotland and later the Kingdom of Ireland to form a single state under the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

 Farthing (coin)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Thanks to the glut of the previous reign, there was no need to produce any copper farthings in the reign of Queen Anne (1701–1714) until the very last year of her reign.
Sir Isaac Newton was Master of the Mint, and he had high ideals about the quality of the coinage, and the Anne farthing is certainly vastly superior in striking and design to the pieces of William III.
The death of Queen Anne thwarted attempts to issue her farthing, but the need for a copper coinage was no less after the accession of King George I (1714–1727).
