  1. Hi there.  The farthing or "oortjie" is my favourite coin.  The sparrows sits on a Sweet Thorn Tree (Acacia Karroo).  The sparrows refers to Mat 10:29.  The verse is significant for the women and children that was in the Bethulie concentration camp during the Anglo Boer war 1899-1902.  To my knowledge, the SA farthing is the only coin the world that refers to a verse in the Bible.
