Fiji, Edward VIII 1 Penny 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 Uncirculated condition.

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.
