PREFACE
THEBRITISHWORLD
England, the mother country, and the vast colonial systemit
founded known as the British Empire, together with its suc-
cessor system, the present day Commonwealth Of Nations
thse formthe British World, the coinage of which this book
illustrates and describes in its entirety.
Fromabout 500 A.D. to 1154, a period of some sixhundred
years, English numismatics is confined exclusively to the British
Isles. During the reign of Henry II, 1154-1168, England ac-
quired some possessions in France through the King's marriage
to Eleanor, the Duchess of Aquitaine. British rule in these lands
extended into the reign of Henry VI, 1422-1461, and the coins
struck in France during this period may be considered the first
in the long line of British colonial issues. They will be found
under Anglo-French Coinage and these coins are known col-
lectively as the Anglo-Gallic series.
After the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, the age of
exploration and colonization began for England in earnest.
Both east and west, coinage followed the course of empire.
In 1600, the East India Company struck the first coins of British
India, and on the other side of the world, in Bermuda in 1620
and in Massachusetts in 1652, the first coins of the American
colonies began to be struck.
Active colonization on a global scale continued for the next
two centuries and the climactic moment in the British World
may be said to have been reached in 1876 when Victoria was
proclaimd Empress of India. Henceforward, her successors
were to be known as Kings and Emperors.
By the time the period between the two World Wars had
arrived, England had become the greatest colonial power in
the history of the world. It was an empire that girdled the
earth and consisted of all sorts of political entitiescolonies
and dependencies; protectorates and mandates; common-
wealths and dominions.
The surge of nationalismthat followed the end of World
War II affected the various colonial powers of the world, Eng-
land included. Newnations were created out of old colonies
a trend of our times that is still continuing. Among some of
these newly independent countries are Ceylon, Cyprus, Ghana
(Gold Coast), India, Malaya, Nigeria (British West Africa),
Pakistan and Sierra Leone.
The loss of India in 1947 marked the titular end of the
British Empire, and this had an immediate effect on the coinage
of the British world. Since 1948, coins of British origin have
dropped all reference to their former imperial status and they
nowappear, showing the royal title minus the Latin "IND
IMP" or the English, "EMPEROR."
Although England has lost direct political control of these
newly created nations, they have nevertheless all elected to
remain within the British Commonwealth Of Nations, and so
the coinage is just as extensive as it ever was. The notable
exception is the former Union of South Africa, nowan inde-
pendent Republic without any ties to the Crown.
THEBRITISHCOMMONWEALTHOF NATIONS. This term,
which is without any precise or definitive meaning, is used to
describe collectively all territories (whether they be independ-
ent nations or colonies of England) which either acknowledge
the reigning sovereign of Britain as the head of the Common-
wealth, or which bear allegiance to the Crown.
As presently constituted, the Commonwealth Of Nations
consists of two broad groups; the first comprises member-
nations or realms of the Commonwealth with their dependen-
cies; the second is composed of all the colonies, dependencies,
protectorates, etc. of Great Britain proper.
The member-nations or realms of the Commonwealth are:
Great Britain Canada
Australia (with Ant- Ceylon
arctic Territory, Cyprus
Nauru, NewGhana
Guinea, Norfolk India
Island and Papua) Malaya
NewZealand (with
Western Samoa and
Ross Dependency)
Nigeria
Pakistan
Sierra Leone
The rest of the Commonwealth consists of the localities which
follow. Some of these have never had a coinage of their own
and these places are starred (*).

It will be notedthat the Republic of Ireland, a part of the
British Isles, is not a member of the Commonwealth; neither is
Burma, which has not followedthe example of the Republics
of India andPakistan, notwithstandingthat all three were
createdout of the partition of British India.
SCOPE
COINSOFTHEBRITISHWORLDis publishedas the first
single volume in the longannals of numismatic literature to
combine the coinage of both the British Isles andthe British
Empire.
The coinage coveredin this book is complete includingthe
goldcoins, which are extractedfromthe standardbook, GOLD
COINSOFTHEWORLD, by the same author andpublisher.
In the present book it has been the aimof the author to
catalogue andevaluate every type of coin fromthe earliest
Anglo Saxon issue of the sixth century to the presenta period
of constant coinage extendingmore than 1400 years.
Major or important varieties of all types have also been
cataloguedandevaluated, so that the general collector or
student will have a more complete anduseful reference work.
The coins of Great Britain begin about 500 A.D. with the
earliest issues of Anglo-Saxon times. These coins may be
consideredthe first true English coins, beingstruck sometime
after the departure of the Romans fromEngland. Thereafter,
the coinage is treatedin standardchronological fashion by
reign, through the various periods of changingEnglish history
until the present reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
Similarly, the coinage of ScotlandandIrelandbegins with
the earliest native issues that can be attributedto these lands.
Scottish coins therefore commence in 1124, the series being
concludedin 1706, a year before the crowns of Englandand
Scotlandwere united. The Irish series begins about 989 A.D.
andis continuedthrough the coinage of the present Republic
of Ireland, cognizance beingtaken of the gap in coinage from
1824 to 1927.
In the British Empire series, the aimhas been to include all
coins, no matter where or when struck, that were issuedunder
British auspices or as a direct result of British influence.
As mentionedearlier, the first such coins were theAnglo-
French issues from1154-1461. However, the colonial series, as
such, actually begins with the portcullis coins of 1600 that were
struck by the East India Company.
This book, therefore, contains the complete coinage of all
British colonies, dependencies, mandates, trust territories, pro-
tectorates anddominions, together with the coinage of all
countries in the British Commonwealth Of Nationsall from
their first year of issue to the present.
In a fewcases, some political license hadto be taken with
certain coins that the author felt belongedin this book. Such
coins, for example, are those in Parts I and3 of South Africa,
which, strictly speaking, are not part of the British world, but
which nevertheless roundout the South African series; likewise
is the last coinage of Cutch includedin this book. In other
cases, some coins are includedfromterritories that were only
briefly or spasmodically under British control, andwhich are
not consideredeven remotely British today, as for example,
Guadeloupe, Martinique, Java andSumatra.
The coins of the Republic of Irelandfrom1928 andof
Burma from1949 are special cases, since they most assuredly
are fromindependent nations that are not in the Common-
wealth; but Ireland, nevertheless, is one of the British Isles and
it wouldbe heretical to exclude the Republic's coins fromthis
book; andthe coins of Burma are includedbecause the earlier
issues were struck under British auspices, when it was a prov-
ince of India.
METALS
As notedearlier, coins of all metals are cataloguedin this
book includinggold. Fromits frequency andlength of use,
silver is the predominant metal. Certainly it was the common
coinage fromearliest days through the reign of Elizabeth I, a
periodof about 1100 years.
Unless it is otherwise statedin the catalogue, all coins are
assumedto be silver. Coins struck in copper, bronze, nickel or
any other metal will be so described, andthe exact metal
namedas part of the description.
The term"nickel" is usedloosely to refer to cupro-nickel, as
well as to other nickel alloys. It is interestingto note that cop-
per coins were a longtime coming, the first regular issues
beingstruck duringthe reign of James I, 1603-1625.
DATES
For the first one thousandyears, English coins were struck
without dates. Not until the reign of EdwardVI, 1547-1553,
does a full A.D. date appear on any coin, the 1 Shillingof
1548 beingthe first one.
Even so, the datingof coins remainedhaphazardfor some
time thereafter, andthe coinage from1548 to 1661 may or
may not be dated. The abbreviation NDfor no date is used
duringthis periodandlater to indicate coins that do not bear
a date.
In 1662, duringthe reign of Charles II, the era of milled
coinage began andso didthe systematic andpurposeful
datingof coins, as is practicedtoday.
Every year in which a given coin was struck will be foundin
the listings, thus makingthis book complete as to dates as well
as types.
Asequence of dates will generally be shown as, for example,
1890, 91, 92, 95, 97, In a sequence of consecutive dates, they
will be shown as, for example, 1890-96. Adash (-) between
any two dates will therefore indicate that the coin in question
was struck in each year coveredby the first andlast dates
shown.
In a fewcases where exact or reliable date information was
not available, a statement will be foundthat not all dates are
known between those listed.
viii
DENOMINATIONS
The English Coinage System
As it took about one thousand years before the first dates
appeared on English coins, it took an even longer time before
the first denominations appeared on them. Actually, expressed
denominations were not really necessary, since in the old days
the value of a coin was determined solely by its weight and
purity. As a matter of record, standard English gold coins have
never borne a denomination, including those of the present
time.
Except for the Maundy coinage and for some isolated, ir-
regular examples during the civil war period of Charles I,
denominations do not regularly appear on standard silver
coins until the reign of WilliamIVthat began in 1830. Minor
coins began to bear a denomination systematically even later,
the first regular issues being struck during the reign of Victoria.
The first silver Crown to showits denomination was the George
Vissue of 1927.
The English coinage systemis based on a Pound consisting
of 20 Shillings, a Shilling consisting of 12 Pence, and a Penny
consisting of 4 Farthings. The Pound is normally a piece of
paper money or a gold coin, which is also called a Sovereign.
However, during the reign of Charles I, silver Pounds and Half
Pounds were struck, these being abnormal issues. The following
table will showthe numerical values of the standard coins and
their names, which sometimes appear on them.

in the text, where they belong, rather than elsewhere in the
book as a separate section of plates.
The description of the coin type is immediately belowthe
illustration. The coin or coins being illustrated can be identified
in the text by an asterisk (*), on the line alongside the de-
nomination and date.
If the coin type consists of only one coin and it is being
illustrated, no * has been used in the text; additionally, no *
has been used if all the coins of a given type have been illus-
trated.
Awide variety of coin sizes has purposely been used in the
illustrations to help identify the many coins that do not bear a
denomination.
It is the author's belief that this is the most lavishly illustrated
book on this subject that has ever been published.
VALUATIONS
The valuations are published as a general guide to the
value of the coins on the numismatic market. Voluminous sales
records, both past and present have been consulted, some
going back to the late nineteenth century. These records have
been used in conjunction with the author's forty-year exposure
to the subject as an eager student, the last twenty of which
have been spent professionally.
It is the author's belief that the valuations reflect the actual
rarity, demand and availability of the coins in the state of
preservation listed, as of the winter of 1961-1962. The value
of coins in worse or better condition than those listed would
be affected accordingly, either lower or higher.
These valuations represent the approximate price for which
the coins would be sold fromstock by a professional numisma-
tist to a collector, both being well informed on the subject.
In general, the numismatic value of a coin is determined
partly by its state of preservation, partly by its rarity, and
almost always by the inexorable lawof supply and demand,
which might sometimes cause a divergence fromthe presently
published valuations.
PATTERN, PROOF ANDTOKENCOINAGE
Pattern coins have been listed in the British Empire section,
mostly for those countries which do not have a regular issue
of their own local coins. In other cases, such coins have been
listed because of tradition or because they are consistent with
and complement the regular issues. Pattern coins have been
identified in this book by the descriptive term, "not placed in
circulation," which applies also to certain regular types that
were struck in proof condition only.
Certain token coins have also been included in this book in
accordance with numismatic tradition. Although their inclusion
is admittedly haphazard, because so many other tokens have
been excluded, those listed do forman important and neces-
sary adjunct to the regular coinage.
ILLUSTRATIONS
More than half of this book is devoted to coin illustrations,
which are shown in the actual sizes of the coins. At great
additional expense, they have been set into their proper place
Please Note: The valuations are for the commonest
date or commonest variety of the coin type. There are
many dates or varieties which are rare and which would
increase the value of a given coin. See the bibliography
for a list of some of the specialized books on the coinage
of the British World.
INNOVATIONS
Several innovations are appearing for the first time in a
catalogue of this nature.
One involves the use of coin namesthat is, the name of the
ruler as it actually appears on the coins. Knowledge of these
coin names is especially useful in studying the early coinages
of Great Britain, Ireland and Scotland, since in most cases these
names are rendered on the coins in a manner quite different
fromthe way in which they are written today. The coin name
of each rulerand in many cases, there is more than one ren-
IX
dering of the namewill be found under the conventional
name of the ruler in ( ).
Another innovation involves the state of preservation, or
condition, of the coins. It will be noted that the valuations are
based on specific coin conditions and that these conditions
vary from country to country or from ruler to ruler. The aim
has been to tailor the valuation of each coin to the condition
in which it is most likely to be found. It will also be noted that
two valuations have been given for the coins in the British
Empire section as well as for the coins in the English milled
series.

Earliest Issues, About 500-700 A.D.
The anonymous silver Sceats that follow are crude and bar-
barous in style and workmanship. They are with or without
Runic legends, some of them being blundered and indecipher-
able. The heads and animal figures take many bizarre shapes,
and become so corrupted that they eventually lose their iden-
tity. Factors such as these are challenging to an exact attribu-
tion of these coins, which are the first, true British coins struck
after the departure of the Romans. The Sceat was valued at
one-twentieth of a Shilling. Anglo-Saxon coinage is undated.

(It is at this point that Anglo-Saxon coinage is tra-
ditionally considered to end and the "English" series
to begin. In 1066, the Normans under Duke William
invaded England from Normandy and defeated the
forces of King Harold II at the Battle of Hastings
one of the most decisive battles in world history. The
Norman conqueror assumed the English throne as
King William I, and although the entire political life
of England was altered thereby, the coinage suf-
fered hardly any change. It was continued without
interruption, and except for the change in the name
of the King [as would be normal for any new King!,
the new coins are similar to the last Anglo-Saxon
issues in style, farbic, workmanship, weight and
value.)

STEPHEN, 1135-1154
(Coin names:Stiefne; Stifne; Stefanvs; Stiefe;

(Stephen's reign was accompanied by anarchy and
civil war. Unlike the Norman invasion from without,
the internal upheavals in Stephen's reign had a con-
siderable effect on the coinage, as is evidenced by
the creation of many coin types under various au-
thorities, which would not otherwise have been
issued. For several years, the opposing Angevin
Party controlled most of Western England, and
issued its own coinage under Empress Matilda and
her son, Duke Henry of Anjou. This coinage was sup-
plemented by irregular local issues bearing Steph-
en's name and by other local issues bearing the
names of several barons, who struck coins autono-
mously for their domains in the manner of contem-
porary French feudal coinage. For the sake of clar-
ity and orderly arrangement, the coinage of Steph-
en's reign has been divided into the four parts which
follow.)

SOME NOTES ON THE SHORT CROSS PENNIES
Documentary evidence reveals that Short Cross Pen-
nies were struck from 1180 through 1247. This type
was thus issued through the full reigns of three
Kings (Henry II, Richard I and John), and partly into
the reign of a fourth King (Henry III). However, all
coins, no matter when struck, bear the same type of
non-identifiable bust and the same unvarying legend
as introduced by Henry II, namely HENRICVS REX.
One of the effects of this monotonous coinage is that
no English coins were ever struck bearing the names
of King Richard I or King John. (John's name, how-
ever, does appear on certain Irish coins.) However,
the name of Henry III does appear as such on the
Long Cross Pennies which follow; on the Short Cross
Pennies he is as anonymous as Richard and John.
Another effect is that it is virtually impossible at first
or second glance to assign any one of these Pennies
to the King who actually struck it. However, English
numismatists, after many years of scientific study of
thousands of coins, have been able to deduce this
information by an exhaustive comparison of the style
of the bust and the character of the lettering. In so
doing, they have divided the Short Cross Pennies
into about twenty varieties and eight classes. They
all prove to be, by and large, of similar rarity and
value.
A completely documented, detailed listing of these
varieties is beyond the scope of this book. Accord-
ingly, only one listing is made for each of the four
rulers, and as a guide, the Obv. illustrations under
each King's name will show the general characteris-
tics of the coins which have been attributed to that
King.

SOME NOTES ON THE LONG CROSS PENNIES
Like the Short Cross Pennies, these also contain
many minor varieties, and the series has been divided
into about twenty varieties and seven classes. Only
one listing has been made of each of the major
types (with or without sceptre). The illustrations are
of typical examples.
The Long Cross coinage bearing the name of Henry
III was struck from 1247 to 1278, which brought it
seven years into the reign of Edward I. It is assumed
that the last two of the seven classes are of Edward-
ian origin, although they cannot otherwise be iden-
tified.

SOME NOTES ON EDWARDIAN COINAGE
(EDWARD I, II, III, 1272-1377)
Like the coinage of Richard and John, it is not
possible to assign an Edwardian coin to the proper
Edward by a reading of the inscription on the coin.
In no case, is it indicated on the coin that the Edward
who appears on it is the First, Second or Third of
that name. In all three reigns, the name of Edward
appears as EDWARDVS or EDW or EDWAR or
EDWAor EDWR or EDWARD or ED.
Edwardian coinage is so prolific that there are nearly
200 varieties of the Silver Penny alone. The coins
differ only in minor variations involving the structure
of the crown, the shape of the bust, the cut of the
hair, the character of the letters or some simple
ornamentation. Although most of the varieties are of
similar rarity and value, the rare or outstanding
varieties have also been catalogued.
Numismatic study has deduced which varieties may

mal types except for the varieties listed below.

the King's titles by including him as King of
France.
2. Treafy coinage; 1361 -1369. His title as King of
France is removed and is replaced by Duke of
Aquitaine.
3. Post-Treafy coinage; 1369-1377. The title of King
of France is restored to the coins, the Aquitaine
title remaining unchanged.

SOME NOTES ON LANCASTRIAN COINAGE
(HENRYIV, V, VI, 1399-1471)
Like the coinage of the three Edwards (see above),
there is no infallible way of attributing a Lancastrian
coin to the proper Henry by a reading of the names
or a comparison of the busts. The types, busts and
general appearance of the coins are the same for atl
three rulers, and in no case is it indicated on the coin
that the Henry, portrayed and described thereon is
the Fourth, Fifth or Sixth of that name. In all three
reigns, the name of Henry appears only as HENRIC
or (rarely) as HENRICVS.
However, numismatic study, by a careful sorting-out
of many minor differences, has made it possible to
assign a given coin to the proper Henry with some
degree of certainty. These minor differences consist,
in the main, of the presence (or absence) on the
coins of many small markings such as pellets, annu-
lets, privy marks, trilobes, mullets, periods, etc. In
addition, the style of the lettering, the appearance
of the bust, and sometimes the weight have served to
render a more exact attribution.
All these numerous varieties, which make an absorb-
ing numismatic study are within the province of a
specialist in the series, and they are beyond the
scope of this book, which is devoted to major types.
The illustrations below are typical of the coins that
have been attributed to each of the three Henrys,
who form so much of the subject matter of Shake-
speare's historical plays. The rare or outstanding
varieties have been listed in addition to the single
listing taking in the commoner varieties.

EDWARD VI, 1547-1553
(Coin name:Plain E or Edward VI)
It is known that during the earlier part of his reign,
Edward VI issued coins bearing both the name and
likeness of his deceased father, Henry VIII. These
issues (Groats, Half Groats, Pennies and Half Pen-
nies), are identical in appearance, types and most
other respects to the life-time coinage of Henry VIII.
Since there is no infallible way of distinguishing be-
tween the two coinages, no coins of Henry VIII types
have been included under Edward VI.

(Coin names:Carolvs; Caro; C.)
(Coins of similar types to those belowwill be found
under Scotland. Please see note under James I above
for distinguishingmarks.)
Mints andMint Marks. The reign of Charles I is
notable in English numismatics for the many mints in
operation andfor the profusion of mint marks. This
unusual condition createda vast andcomplicated
number of varieties, although the number of basic
coin types was not abnormally large. Several new
mints were openedas the result of the King's move-
ments, andof the civil wars, which ultimately ledto
his execution in 1649. In order to simplify the ceta-
loguingof these many varieties as well as to make
it more orderly andreadable, thus facilitatingthe
findingof any coin, there follows belowa list of the
various mints, together with the mint marks, symbols
or other devices that may be foundon the coins and
which identify their place of origin. In the catalogue
section itself, only the mint city is namedandit may
be assumedthat a given coin will bear any one of
the marks belongingto that mint, either singly or in
combination, or on one or both sides of the coin,
or as part of the legendor by itself in the field.
Briofs Coinage. Especial reference is made to the
coins engravedandstruck by Nicholas Briot for the
Tower or other mints. Briot was a French artist, en-
graver andcoiner who duringhis termof employ-
ment in Englandstruck coins of superior quality. He
himself engravedthe dies, the coins then being
struck on importedmachines in a manner much im-
provedover the usual hammeredcoinage. Briot's
coins are fully round, well andevenly struck and
distinguishedby an over-all excellence in the details
of workmanship. Most of the hammeredcoinage of
this reign is crude andpoorly struck.
The "Declaration." Some of the reverses on the coin-
age after 1642 bear a Latin legendwhich is custo-
marily referredto as the "Declaration." This legend
is variously abbreviatedon the coins fromthe Decla-
ration as proclaimedby Charles I in 1642 at Well-
ington. It reads in full RELIGOPROTESTANTIVM,
LEGESANGLIAE, LIBERTASPARLIAMENTI. (The re-
ligion of the Protestants, the laws of England, the
independence of Parliament.)
List of the mints duringthe reign of Charles I and
of the various marks usedby these mints on their
coin issues. All but the London Tower mint are pro-
vincial, emergency mints.

conditions from old silverware cut to size, shape

Part II. Milled Coinage (1662-1685)
Coinage Symbols or Marks. Beginning with this
reign, the London Mint began to place certain sym-
bols on the silver and gold coinage to denote the
source of the metal from which the coins were
struck. On the silver coins of Charles II, the follow-
ing symbols appear:
Rose. Silver from western England.
Plume. Silver from Wales.
Elephant. Silver from the African Company.
Elephant and castle. Silver from the African
Company.
The valuations for the following milled coins are for
Fine and Extremely Fine condition.
General type for the Crown, Half Crown,
Shilling and 6 Pence.
Draped, laureate bust with or without a symbol be-
low the bust, as indicated. Rev. Cross of four shields
with a pair of interlinked C's in each angle. The
Crowns of 1662 are slightly larger in size than later
Crowns, and only on the reverses of the 1 662 Crowns
are the top and bottom shields quartered; on later
reverses, these two shields are entire.

1 SHILLING
(As on the Crowns and Half Crowns, there are
varieties of the bust on the Shillings. However, the
much smaller size of the Shilling causes these differ-
ences in the size and style of the bust to appear as
minute or insignificant. The Shillings are, therefore,
catalogued according to the features of the bust,
namely the normal features as they appear from
1663 to 1683, and the pronounced older features
on the coinage of 1683 and 1684.)

B. Bank of England Emergency Coinage
A foreign silver coin, the obverse of which is counter-
stamped with a small head of George III. These
coins were issued from 1797 to 1804; an oval stamp
was used from 1797 to 1803; an octagonal stamp
was used in 1804. The bulk of this coinage consisted
of foreign silver dollars, but smaller denominations
were also counterstamped, as noted below.
Most of these coins consisted of the 8 Real pieces or
silver Dollars from the Spanish Colonial mints in
America located at Mexico City, Guatemale, Potosi,
Lima and Santiago. Sometimes, coins from conti-
nental Spain will be found and very rarely coins of
France and the United States. Counterstamped U.S.
coins are the rarest and most valuable.
These counterstamped coins were issued as a neces-
sity measure under authority of the Bank of England,
which declared the 8 Real piece to be legal tender
for 4 Shillings 9 Pence, just 3 Pence short of the
standard Crown or 5 Shilling piece.
As a result of widespread counterfeiting, this coin-
age was suspended late in 1804 and replaced by
the Bank of England Dollar (see below.) The valua-
tions are for the commonest mint, which in most
cases would be Mexico City, and for Very Fine
condition.

Jubilee head. Rev. Square shield within the Order

only, and it was withdrawn shortly after issue be-
cause of its similarity in design to the Gold Half
Pound. Both coins are about the same size, and since
neither bears a denomination, the silver coin was
soon gold plated and palmed off as a gold coin. In
this respect, the 6 Pence is similar to the U.S. 5 Cent
piece of 1883 which was issued early in 1883 with-
out the word "cents," and which also underwent
immediate gilding.

The copper coins are the same dimensions as those
of previous reigns. In 1860, copper was discontinued
for coinage, being replaced by bronze. The new
bronze coins are smaller and thinner than the older
copper coins, and in addition show the mark of
value. The H mint mark on some of the bronze coins
indicates the Heaton Mint in Birmingham.

(Coin name:Georgivs V)
Until 1920, the silver coinage was of the same purity
as the previous issues, namely, .925 fine. Beginning
in 1920, the silver coinage was debased to a purity
of only .500. The mint marks H and KN on certain
Pennies indicate the Heaton and King's Norton Mints.
The valuations in this reign are for Very Fine and
Uncirculated condition.

EDWARDVIII, 1936
Dies for the complete coinage of Edward VIII (gold,
silver and bronze) had already been made by the
time the King abdicated. The coins bore his head
and only a fewsets were struck fromthese dies for
national institutions or royalty. None was ever
placed in circulation, and it is doubtful if any of
these coins will ever appear on the market. However,
some samples of the brass, 12-sided 3 Pence coin
were distributed for testing in vending machines
(this being a newsize and shape in English coinage)
and these appear on the market at rare intervals.
Hence, this one coin is catalogued below.
It is interesting to note, however, that coins bearing
the name of Edward VIII (but not his portrait) were
actually struck and placed in circulation in certain
colonies. These coins will be found catalogued under
British West Africa, East Africa, Fiji, NewGuinea
and the native state of Cutch in India.
Plain head. Rev. Three flowers of the thrift plant.
Brass, 12-sided coin.
1290. 3 Pence 1937 Very rare
GEORGEVI, 1937-1952
(Coin name:Georgivs VI)
The last year in which silver coins were struck for
circulation was 1946. Beginning in 1947, all de-
nominations formerly struck in silver have been
struck in a cupro-nickel alloy (shortened to "nickel"
in the listings below.) The Maundy Coinage, how-
ever, continued to be struck in silver; from1937 to
1946 in silver of .500 purity and from1947 to 1952
in silver of .925 purity.
Achange in the Sovereign's title was made on all
English and colonial coinage struck in 1949 and
later. The words "IND. IMP" (Emperor of India) were
dropped fromthe royal title in that year as a result
of the formation of India as an independent nation.
The valuations in this reign are for Very Fine
and Uncirculated condition.

IRELAND
IRELAND-SIHTRIC III
Status. An Independent Republic, formerly un-
der British rule.
PART I. VIKING-DANISH COINAGE,
ABOUT 980-1180 A.D.
Crude and barbarous coins struck in Ireland by the
resident Vikings. The types are imitations of the con-
temporary English coins. They carry English names
and legends and cover the period from Aethelred II
to William II (979-1100 A.D.).
During this period, the name of only one non-English
ruler appears on the coins, namely, Sihtric; even
then the name of Aethelred or Cnut appears on the
reverse. The coins are difficult to attribute as they
are usually in worn condition with blundered or
meaningless legends. They are nevertheless quite
different in their general appearance from the simi-
lar type English coins they so crudely imitate. Many
of them bear the name of Dublin, given variously as
DIFLN, DYFLI, DYFLINR, DYFELI, etc.
The major types of the various rulers are here cata-
logued, but there are many minor varieties that are
not within the scope of this book. The coins are
without dates until the reign of Henry VIII, 1509-
47. The valuations are for Fine condition.

face value to compensate for an increase in the
price of silver in 1578.)

Coinage as James I of England, 1603-1625
The coinage from 1604-1609 shows the arms of
Scotland in the second quarter of the shield. After
1609, the Scottish arms are in the first and fourth
quarters of the shield.
Certain types of 'the following coins are similar to
corresponding English coins of James I. The coins
struck in Scotland can be distinguished by a thistle
as a mint mark and by the Scottish crown on the
King's head.
Scotch currency was valued at one-twelfth of Eng-
lish currency. Hence the Crown or 5 Shilling piece of
England was called a 60 Shilling piece in Scotland.

ANGLO-FRENCH COINAGE
(THE ANGLO-GALLIC SERIES)
These coins were struck by English royalty for their
possessions in France, and they are typically French
in appearance, rather than English. They may also
be considered as French Feudal issues. The series
itself ends historically with the coinage of Henry VI,
during whose reign England lost all her lands in
France except Calais, which remained as a branch
of the Royal Mint, striking English type coins.
The continental coinage of Henry VIII (fifty years
later) is included in the Anglo-Gallic series in ac-
cordance with the traditional attribution of these
few coins which were struck at Tournai.
Anglo-Gallic coinage is undated and the valuations
are for Fine condition. All coins are silver unless
noted otherwise.

The silver coins without mint mark from 1910-1915
were struck at the London mint. The bronze coins
wifh / minf mark were struck at Calcutta from 7976-
18 and at Bombay in 1942 and 1943. The Sydney
mint was discontinued in 1926.
The I Shilling of 1921 has a small star over the date,
which was to indicate silver of reduced purity; how-
ever, it was decided not to use base silver for coin-
age, as was being done in England.
The only silver coin struck at the Perth mint is the
Shilling dated 1946. A dot was used as a mint mark
and it may be found on the reverse, separating the
star from the S of the word Shilling.
NEW SOUTH WALES
Emergency coinage issued prior to the formation of
the Commonwealth. Spanish-American silver 8 Real
pieces or Dollars were used for this coinage, after a
large hole was first made in the Dollars by punch-
ing out the central portion.
The large pieces were then stamped around the peri-
meter of the hole with NEW SOUTH WALES 1813
on the Obv. and FIVE SHILLINGS on the Rev. The
small center pieces were also used as coins and were
counterstamped on the Obv. with a crown and NEW
SOUTH WALES 1813, and on the Rev. with FIF-
TEEN PENCE.

CUT AND COUNTERSTAMPED COINAGE
Emergency coins made from existing 8 Real pieces
(silver Dollars) of the various Spanish American
mints. A hole was punched through the center of
these coins, which were then usually counterstamped
with some device. The discarded center pieces or
plugs were also counterstamped and sometimes
these in turn were punched through, creating still
other values.
This coinage was issued about 1800 and is undated
except for the date of the mother coin, which some-
times survives.
The valuations are for the average used condition
in which the coins appear.

each monarch, in conformity with numismatic custom.

INDIA
Status. A former British Empire, and now a
member-nation of the British Commonwealth
of Nations.
During the years of British influence in India, be-
ginning about 1600, a dual, concurrent coinage
existedthat issued under British, auspices and that
issued by the various native states. Sometimes the
two systems overlapped, resulting in coins of quite
similar types being struck under multiple authority.
(East India Company imitations of native coins.)
Many volumes can be written on the coinage of
India in its entirety. This work, however, is con-
cerned only with those coins struck under a central
British authority and with those coins of the native
states that bear either the portrait or name of a
British sovereign. Regrettably, the coinage of the
other native states is not within the scope of this
book.
Before proceeding with the coins proper, the East
India Company merits some attention. The United
East India Company (its full name but abbreviated
VEIC on the coins showing its trade or bale mark)
was the all-powerful ruler of India. Operating under
various royal charters, it had its own army and navy
as well as complete political and economic auton-
omy in India. This lasted from 1600 until the Indian
mutiny of 1857, when all of its governmental func-
tions were transferred to the English Crown.
During the period of its activity, the East India
Company authorized and issued the coinage for the
three great Presidencies it had established, Bom-
bay, Bengal and Madras. The Company became the
sole coin issuing authority under the terms of the
various royal charters that had been granted in
1600, 1698, 1702 and 1708. In 1835, the Company
issued its first coins for all India and in 1858 its
coining activities were transferred to the British
Government.
India was only one base of the East India Company;
it also operated throughout the East Indies and
struck coins for many localities beyond India. Indian
coinage, of course, was in Rupees, Annas and Pice;
coins of the Company with the denomination in
Cents will be found under Straits Settlements, as well
as some other localities, a list of which will be found
under Geographical Divisions at the front of this
book.
The trade mark of the East India Company may be
described as a heart shaped shield containing the
letters VEIC, the whole surmounted by a symbol in
the shape of a 4.
Some rather clear cut numismatic divisions can be
made in the British India series and it has been
divided into three parts.
Part I is a catalogue of the standard, royal portrait
coinage issued for all India, followed by the issues
of the present Republic of India.
Part II is concerned with the coinage of the East
India Company for the three great Presidencies of
Bombay, Bengal and Madras.
Part III treats of the coins of those native states that
carry either the portrait or name of a British mon-
arch.

A. STANDARD, ROYAL COINAGE
(Note: The William IV coins of 1835 and the Victoria
coins of 1840 were issued by the East India Com-
pany and are so inscribed. They are included in
Part I as a matter of convenience, since they are
the first royal portrait coins of India and are the
prototypes of the later imperial issues, both coinages
forming a continuous, unified series.)
The valuations are for Very Fine and Uncirculated
condition.

PART II
COINAGE OF THE EAST INDIA COMPANY
The valuations are for Very Fine condition.
A. BOMBAY
Portcullis coinage. Crowned shield of England flanked
by E and R. Rev. Crowned portcullis.
This issue bears the name and title of Elizabeth I,
who granted the first charter to the East India Com-
pany in 1600. Although there was no Bombay
Presidency at the time these coins were issued, they
are included here because they are the first coins
of the Company, and because Bombay later became
its first base of operations.
The which forms an isolated part of the legend
on both obverse and reverse represents the last
numeral of the year 1600. (See the dating on the
English Crowns and Half Crowns of Elizabeth.) This
issue which is here catalogued in Dollar values, is
also known as Real, Ryal or Portcullis coinage, the
1 Dollar piece being equal to 8 Spanish Reales or
1 English Crown.
1. 1 Dollar 1600 250.00
2. Half Dollar 1600 125.0O
3. Quarter Dollar 1600 85.00

SURAT SILVER COINAGE
This silver coinage of the East India Company was
modelled after the native type coins struck at Surat
by the Nabob of Surat. These coins can be distin-
guished from other similar type issues of the East
India Company by the invariable use of the figures
46 (shown in Persian numerals), and by a mark
resembling a sunflower; on some perfectly struck
coins of the crude, thick type, the date 1215 (in
Persian numerals) may also be seen. 46 is the regnal
year of Shah Alem, and 1215 (1800 A.D.) the year
the coins were authorized. Although these Surat
silver coins were struck from about 1735 to 1835,
the 46 and 1215 are invariably on the coins, they
being otherwise undated. The Surat silver coins of all
issues are of the same general type; namely, native
legend on each side.
First issue. Thick, small size coins, crudely struck and
not always perfectly round, with parts of the legend
usually missing. Struck from about 1735 to 1818.

General Silver Coinage
Native legend on each side and of same general
style as the Surat silver coinage (see above). Bengal
coinage was struck at three mints; Murshidabad,
Farukhabad and Benares. The coinage of each mint

different in each case and which, like the Surat
coinage, appears invariably on the coins, regard-
less of the actual year of striking.
MURSHIDABAD MINT
With regnal year 19 (except for the first issue) in
Persian numerals and with a small fwe-lobed orna-
ment (cinquefoil) as a mint mark. Some of the

First issue. Thick, small size coins of native work-
manship struck from about 1765 to 1793. (This first

NATIVE STATES
Coinage bearing either the portrait or name of a
British sovereign. This native state coinage began
after the Indian Mutiny of 1857 when these states
proclaimed their allegiance to the British Crown. In
most cases, the British monarch's name superseded a
Mogul emperor's name on the coins. The earlier
isues of these states are not included in this book;
neither are the coins of the many other Indian States
which do not show any British connection.
The valuations are for Very Fine condition.

CUTCH (KUTCH)
The coinage of Cutch is dual, bearing the name of
the native Maharajah as well as the name and title
of the reigning British monarch. This dual coinage
existed from 1862 to 1947 at which time British
dominion in India was coming to an end.
During this period, three maharajahs ruled Cutch
and all of them struck coins bearing the name of
whatever British sovereign was contemporary with
them. These three native rulers and their dates of
reign follow:
Prag ma I ji II, 1860-1875
Khengarji III, 1876-1942
Vijayaraji, 1942-1947
The names of the British sovereigns appear on the
obverse in the Persian alphabet together with the
A.D. date which appears in Persian numerals. The
reverse of the coins bear the names and titles of the
maharajahs together with the native Samvat Era
year. The Samvat dates equivalent to 1862-1947
A.D. are 1918-2004.
In the list of coins below, only the A.D. dates are
given.
With regard to the coinage itself, the silver coins are
in the Kori denomination and the copper coins are
in the Dokda denomination, 1 Dokda being 1 24th
of a Kori.
It is possible that dates exist in addition to those
listed, as well as other denominations (as yet un-
recorded), under rulers where they should exist.

IONIAN ISLANDS
Status. Agroup of islands in the Ionian Sea
and a British Protectorate from 1815 to 1863.
Since 1863, the Islands have formed a part of
Greece.
5 Lepta is equivalent to 1 Obol or an English Half
Penny. The 30 Lepta silver coin is, therefore, a 3
pence piece. Only the silver coinage shows the
mark of value, the copper being without it.
Like the coinage of Guernsey, there is no reference
to the British monarch on the coins of the Ionian
Islands, the only connection with England being the
seated figure of Britannia. The coins are catalogued
according to the years of reign of the British sover-
eigns. The name of Ionian Islands is inscribed in the
Greek language on the obverse.
The valuations are for Very Fine and Uncirculated
condition.

ISLE OF MAN
Status. Adependency of the Crown.
From 1406 to 1765, the Isle of Man was owned and
ruled by the Earls of Derby and their successors,
the Dukes of Atholl. They exercised all the rights of
sovereign authority on the Island, including the right
of coinage. In 1765, these rights were partially pur-
chased by the British government, and in 1829, the
complete transfer of the Isle of Man was effected,
at which time, it became a dependency of the Crown.
Unless stated otherwise, the valuations are for Very
Fine and Uncirculated condition. The coinage is
either copper or bronze.

chine struck. Some of the copper coins have a brassy
appearance and may vary in size.
