JUST £9.99 – own the Penny Farthing Framed Set

The Victorian age is famous for the innovative technology developed during her reign, and one such invention is the iconic Penny Farthing bicycle.

And now you can pay tribute to this famous early bicycle with the Penny Farthing Framed Set – featuring genuine Victorian Penny and Farthing coins, each over 100 years old!

The Penny Farthing

The penny-farthing was developed by British engineer James Starley and was so-called because of the wheels’ resemblance to the big old penny and the far smaller farthing.

The bicycle’s unusual design was chosen because the large diameter of the front wheel made it easier to propel. Its influence on the pursuit of cycling was massive and the bicycle now stands as one of the world’s most popular hobbies and modes of transport in the world.
