British West Africa, Edward VIII, 1/10th Penny Uncirculated, 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 the 1/10 penny in uncirculated.

In 1887, Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee, and the Royal Mint was allowed to change her portrait for the first time since 1838. Unfortunately, Queen Victoria hated her new portrait on the Shilling... Coincraft has a nice group of the first year of issue, 1887. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and are in Very Fine Condition. Considering they are now 130 years old, this is quite outstanding.

Victoria, Crown Fine, 1892

In 1887 Queen Victoria finally allowed her portrait on the coins to be changed. After all it had been about 50 years since it was changed and she was no longer the 18 year old who first came to the throne. It was her Golden Jubilee and thus her coins became known as her Jubilee Coins. The Crowns on offer are all dated 1892. They are struck in Sterling Silver or 925 silver, You have Queen Victoria on one side with a rather small crown on her head. The reverse has a crowned shield within a garter.
