Fiji, Edward VIII 1 Penny Choice Uncirculated

Because Edward VIII abdicated in 1936, no British coins were struck for circulation. On the other hand a number of Edward VIII coins were struck for overseas colonies and dependents. The most difficult one to get is the Fiji Penny. It has been some years since we were last able to offer this coin to our collectors. Ian went on a buying trip to New Zealand last year and was able to find a small quantity of this difficult coin. Each coin has a hole in the middle, I guess that was so the locals could carry them on a string. In Choice Uncirculated condition.

New Zealand, Commemorative Halfcrown EF, 1940

The 1940 Halfcrown is one of only two commemorative coins from New Zealand before decimalization. It was issued under King George VI, is struck in silver and the coins are in Extremely Fine condition. It has been years since we last were able to offer this important commemorative coin and once they are gone, who knows when will we find any more. After all, if New Zealand doesn’t have its own coins, who else will.
