The farthing was the smallest denomination in the UK. One quarter of a cent. They were discontinued when I was there. They still had the haypenny though one half cent.

Nothing to do with cents. As set out on page 2, a farthing was a quarter of one penny, and a ha'penny was half of a penny.

Sorry about that, Crows. When I was there the pound was $2.40 to the dollar. Hence a penny was exactly equal to a cent. Life was easier then.
