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.

Picture of British West Africa, Edward VIII, London Penny, 1936

British West Africa, Edward VIII, London Penny, 1936

While there were no portrait coins of King Edward VIII, the King who abdicated in favour of his brother George VI coins for the colonies were issued. British West Africa had three denominations struck, the 1/10th Penny, 1/2 Penny, and the Penny. All have a six-pointed star on them and a hole in the middle. The hole was for the natives, so they could string the coins together and then wear them. The Penny, which is the coin we are offering you, was struck at three different Mints, Heaton, Kings Norton, and London. The London Mint is the scarcest and that is the one on offer. 1936 British West Africa Penny struck at the Royal Mint in Uncirculated condition, what more can you ask for?

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.
