South Africa, 1952 Threepence UNC

In 1952 King George VI died. The last ever British Silver Threepence was issued in his name up to 1944. But in South Africa they issued a Silver Threepence for circulation in 1952 and that is the coin we have on offer today. You have the bare head portrait of the King on one side and a plant and sticks of wood on the other. An interesting memento and if you have one of our George VI sets, even more interesting.

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...

Picture of British West Africa, Edward VIII, Halfpenny, 1936

British West Africa, Edward VIII, Halfpenny, 1936

Although no coins of King Edward VIII were released in this country, due to his Abdication, they did strike some coins for the overseas Colonies. British West Africa had three different denominations struck and that were actually used as day to day money. They are the Penny, Halfpenny and Tenth Penny, all were struck with holes in the middle, as the locals had no pockets and the hole allowed them to be stuck on a string that they could then wear. Not only were there three denominations, but they were struck at three different Mints, some of which are scarce. Offered here is Halfpenny in uncirculated condition.

East Africa and Uganda, 1c 1912H Choice Brilliant Uncirculated

This British Colony no longer exists, after this coin was struck some 107 years ago, it became East Africa and after that Uganda. We bought a hoard of these One Cent coins struck at The Mint Birmingham Ltd. in 1912 with the H mintmark. I have never seen this coin before in such wonderful quality. The worst ones are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the best ones are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. They were issued under King George V and are now 107 years old. They were struck with a hole in the centre so the natives, who did not have pockets, could string them around their neck. You have a crown and the name of King George V on one side with the denomination on the other side. These are beautiful coins and they should really be in your collection. Once this hoard is gone, there will be no more. CHOICE Brilliant Uncirculated, 107 years old and struck when Britain really had an Empire. They are Rare so choice.
