Question doesn't make sense.

A penny farthing is an old kind of bicycle with a big front wheel and a small rear wheel. By 1947 they were too old to be useful but not old enough to be interesting. Scrap value.

Pennies and farthings were coins. They have separate values.

A Penny Farthing was a popular type of 19th century bicycle, not a coin.

The Penny Farthing bicycle was so named because of the disparate sizes of the two wheels, the front wheel being very large and the rear wheel being relatively very small, like a comparison of the Penny and Farthing coins of the period.
