Nigeria, 1959 1/2d

This bronze Halfpenny from the Federation of Nigeria is a one year type coin, the last coin of Nigeria with the legend Queen Elizabeth the Second. The coins are Brilliant Uncirculated but have mellowed just a bit over the past 59 years. They have a hole in them, so the locals could carry them on a string. These coins are much more difficult to find than the catalogue indicates, in fact we cannot remember the last time we had some. Priced at less than catalogue and a difficult coin to find.

British West Africa GVI 1950 KN 1/10 Penny BU

The smallest coin issued by British West Africa under Kings George V and George VI is the 1/10th Penny. It is about the size of the old sixpence, struck in cupro-nickel and with a hole in the middle. The hole was so the locals could carry the coins on a string as they didn’t have pockets. Uncirculated condition and generally difficult to find.

In 1964 Canada still issued the 10 Cents, 25 Cents, 50 Cents and Dollar in Silver for general usage. They didn’t make Proof Sets but rather they called them Prooflike Sets. We have some of the 1964 Prooflike Silver Sets with the Charlottetown commemorative silver dollar. All the coins are in Prooflike Specimen condition. We are going to offer the coins separately; here we offer the 1964 $1. Remember that the coins are now 55 years old and struck in silver.
