In the brief reign of King Edward VIII, the only coins to be issued for circulation were for
overseas territories. The coin on offer is the Halfpence for British West Africa. The Halfpence is the most difficult denomination to get.
These coins were struck in Birmingham at the Kings Norton Mint and carry the KN mintmark.
The coins are in Uncirculated condition and the KN is the most difficult of the Halfpennies to find.
One of the most difficult denominations to get, in Uncirculated condition, is the Halfpenny. It was a denomination that was regularly used and thus usually comes in circulated condition. We went through one of our vault rooms and found a box of 1953 Coronation Halfpennies in Uncirculated condition taken from the Mint Set of that year; they came out of a plastic folder. Over the past 65 years, they have mellowed a bit, but they have never seen circulation. Years ago we offered the 1953 Penny and that quickly sold out; we expect the same thing to happen on the Coronation halfpenny.
