Looking at this Australian silver Threepence you would say it is a King George V Threepence. But most likely it was struck in the ten months that Edward VIII was King and it could even have been minted under King George VI. It is the last dated Threepence of King George V, that is it is dated 1936, the year of three kings. The coins are silver and are in Very Good-Fine condition. We only have a small quantity and it is your choice which King they are.
In 1910 Australia struck its first-ever Silver coins. The next coins issued carried the face of King George V. Australia carried on striking George V coins until 1936. One interesting note about the Sixpences of King George V is that they were struck in Sterling Silver. We stopped using Sterling Silver in our coins in 1919. Dates will be of our choice, but all the coins are in Very Good-Fine condition. You have George V on one side and the arms of Australia on the other side with a kangaroo and an emu. Nice coins not all that easy to find...
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.
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. The coins of British West Africa have a star on them and a hole in the middle, so the natives could sting the coins and then wear them. 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...
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.
