British West Africa, 1/10thd 1926

In 1926 British West Africa still existed and in 1926 Princess Elizabeth was born. British West Africa struck a small coin with a star on it and a hole in the center. Not planed that way but what a wonderful coincident.A coin with a star to celebrate her birthday. The coin from the year of our Queen’s birth (1926) has a denomination of 1/10th of a Penny. The hole was so the natives who did not have pockets, could thread the coins on string and wear them around their necks. They wore their tributes to their future Queen. These coins are in Uncirculated condition but have toned down a bit over the past 95 years. They look great but are in short supply.
