Straits Settlements Queen Victoria 1/2 cent coins value

Here is a Straits Settlements Queen Victoria 1/2 cent coins price value with complete years as a reference for everyone. Most collectors only had half cent coins for the year 1872H, 1884 and 1889. The proof coins are almost impossible to get because of lower mintage and high price. 1/2 cent Queen Victoria for year 1883 is also one of the coins that is very hard to find. The coin struck in copper from 1872 until 1883 and change to bronze from 1884 until 1901.

Straits Settlements Queen Victoria 1/4 cent coins value

Here is a Straits Settlements Queen Victoria 1/4 cent coins price value with complete years as a reference for everyone. The proof coins are almost impossible to get because the price are very high and I never saw any of the proof in this list.

1/4 cent Queen Victoria for year 1883 is also one of the coins that is very hard to find. Complete set for this coin is a little bit hard to achieved but with a hardwork and determination, I do think everyone can get them. The coin struck in copper from 1872 until 1883 and change to bronze from 1884 until 1901.

Straits Settlements Queen Victoria Coins

The first series of Straits Settlements coins bearing the inscription “Straits Settlement” was issued in 1871 for the ruler Queen Victoria. 5 Cents, 10 Cents and 20 Cents were introduced in 1871. In 1872 ¼ Cent, ½ Cent and 1 Cent were released into circulation. Silver 50 cents coins were first introduced in 1886. ¼ , ½ and 1 Cent coins were made by copper and bronze depending on their issuance year. 5, 10, 20 and 50 Cents were made by .800 silver.

The Straits Settlements coinage gradually became acceptable legal tender in the neighbouring Federated Malay States consisting Perak, Selangor, Pahang and Negeri Sembilan which came into being on 1st July 1896.

The Unfederated Malay States consisting of Perlis, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu came to accept the coinage of the Straits Settlements after the appointment of British advisers in 1909. Johor only accepted the appointment of British Advisor in 1914. However, due to the close prodimity of Johor to Melaka and Singapore, the coinage of the Straits Settlements was already in circulation in Johor by the late 19th Century.
