The design of the top medallion is based on the hammered coinage from the reign of Charles I and is known, in coin collecting circles, as a ten shilling 'Angel' coin (hence the Roman numeral X).

The 1956 Farthing, with its wren motif, was designed by Harold Wilson Parker, whose WP initials are faithfully reproduced on the medallion.
