Edward VIII, Penny British West Africa Error KN Mint, 1936
In the ten months that Edward VIII was King, no coins for this country were struck for cir- Army’
culation. 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 and all are in in Uncirculated
condition. The Kings Norton coins were mis-struck in larger numbers than the Heaton Mint coins. Should be very fascinating to the Edward VIII collector.
