BWA Edward VIII London Penny

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?

British West Africa 1d Error KN Mint

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.

Henry III Silver Penny Very Good

One of the earliest and least expensive English coins you can get is a Silver Penny of King Henry III. He reigned from 1216-1272 so that makes it between 700 and 800 years ago. The Silver Penny was the only denomination issued during his rule. You have a stylised portrait of the monarch on one side and a long cross on the other side. This long cross was so that you would have guide lines if you wanted to cut the coin in half, thus making two Halfpennies or in Quarters thus making four Farthings. The Silver in the coin was good, that many were illegally exported and melted down. The excess money was the profit, but it was illegal to export these coins. In Very Good grade.
