East Africa & Uganda 1c 1912H BU

This British Colony no longer exists, after this coin was struck some 107 years ago, it became East Africa and after that Uganda. We bought a hoard of these One Cent coins struck at The Mint Birmingham Ltd. in 1912 with the H mintmark. I have never seen this coin before in such wonderful quality. They were issued under King George V and are now 107 years old. They were struck with a hole in the centre so the natives, who did not have pockets, could string them around their neck. You have a crown and the name of King George V on one side with the denomination on the other side. These are beautiful coins and they should really be in your collection. Once this hoard is gone, there will be no more. Brilliant Uncirculated, 107 years old and struck when Britain really had an Empire. They are Rare so choice.

Picture of British West Africa, Edward VIII 1936H Penny

British West Africa, Edward VIII 1936H Penny

One of the only countries to issue coins with the name King Edward VIII on them was British West Africa. No countries issued coins with his portrait, just a few with his name on their coins. The coins of British West Africa have a star on them and a hole in the middle, so the natives could sting the coins and then wear them. There are 3 different denominations 1/10th Penny, 1/2 Penny and 1 Penny. All the coins were struck in this country and then sent to Africa. Here we are offering the one penny in Uncirculated condition. Buy it and then you can tell your friends that you own an actual Edward VIII coin. Remember he was King for only 10 months...
