British West Africa, Edward VIII, Penny Error KN Mint, 1936
In the ten months that Edward VIII was King, no coins for this country were struck for circulation. But overseas coins without his portrait but with his name on the coins were struck.
One of these places was British West Africa. The Penny which is the largest coin struck, was
made at the Royal Mint, Heaton Mint and Kings Norton Mint.
The penny on offer here was struck at the Kings Norton mint. All the coins are in Uncirculated
condition. The Kings Norton coins were misstruck in larger numbers than the Heaton Mint coins. It should be an interesting item to an Edward VIII collector.
