British West Africa, Edward VIII, Penny Error KN Mint, 1936

In the ten months that Edward VIII was King, no coins for this country were struck for circulation. But overseas coins without his portrait but with his name on the coins were struck. One of these places was British West Africa. The Penny which is the largest coin struck, was made at the Royal Mint, Heaton Mint and Kings Norton Mint. The penny on offer here was struck at the Kings Norton mint. All the coins are in Uncirculated condition. The Kings Norton coins were misstruck in larger numbers than the Heaton Mint coins. It should be an interesting item to an Edward VIII collector.

British West Africa, Edward VIII, Halfpenny KN Uncirculated 1936

In the brief reign of King Edward VIII, the only coins to be issued for circulation were for overseas territories. The coin on offer is the Halfpence for British West Africa. The Halfpence is the most difficult denomination to get. These coins were struck in Birmingham at the Kings Norton Mint and carry the KN mintmark. The coins are in Uncirculated condition and the KN is the most difficult of the Halfpennies to find.
