In 1936 Edward VIII became our King, but no coins from this country were released into circulation. There were a number of overseas territories and countries that did issue coins in the name of King Edward VIII. Perhaps one of the most difficult of these to obtain is the Penny from Papua New Guinea.
It is a copper coin with a hole in the middle, so the natives could wear it on a string around their necks, as most did not wear trousers. The coins are in Uncirculated condition and have mellowed a little over the years.

A very difficult type coin.

One of the most North Eastern Provinces of Canada is Prince Edward Island. They only made a coin once for this area and that was in 1871. You have the crowned portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a pine tree on the other. This was a large One Cent coin and it was the only coin ever struck for Prince Edward Island and it was minted for just one year, 1871. The coins are in Fine or better condition and if you are trying to put together one coin from each country, you will definitely need this one. Our agent has been going to Canada twice a year for two years to put this group together. After all there are a lot of people who want a coin from Prince Edward Island and not a lot of coins to go around. A very important type coin and the only coin of the country.

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.

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...
