Nigeria, 1959 1/2d
This bronze Halfpenny from the Federation of Nigeria is a one year type coin, the last coin
of Nigeria with the legend Queen Elizabeth the Second. The coins are Brilliant
Uncirculated but have mellowed just a bit over the past 59 years. They have a hole in them, so
the locals could carry them on a string.
These coins are much more difficult to find than the catalogue indicates, in fact we cannot
remember the last time we had some. Priced at less than catalogue and a difficult coin to find.
