British West Africa 1/10th Penny 1939 Unc
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.
