Newfoundland, when it was independent, used to issue its own coins, but with the portrait of British Monarchs on them. The smallest denomination struck was the One Cent coin. But due to inflation, the One Cent coin went from a large cent to a small cent.Under King George V the One Cent was a large bronze coin, but under King George VI it became a small bronze coin. You will note that both portraits are facing left, rather than right and left. That is because Edward VIII came in between them and his portrait would have been Facing the other way. Nice coins, two monarchs, two different sizes one denomination. Both coins are in Fine or better condition and well worth adding to your collection.
