British West Africa, Edward VIII, London Penny, 1936
While there were no portrait coins of King Edward VIII, the King who abdicated in favour
of his brother George VI coins for the colonies were issued.
British West Africa had three denominations struck, the 1/10th Penny, 1/2 Penny, and the Penny. All have a six-pointed star on them and a hole in the middle. The hole was for the natives, so they could string the coins together and then wear them. The Penny, which is the coin we are offering you, was struck at three different Mints, Heaton, Kings Norton, and London. The London Mint is the scarcest and that is the one on offer. 1936 British West Africa Penny struck at the Royal Mint in Uncirculated condition, what more can you ask for?
