Ceylon Sri Lanka 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 5 Cents  1870 to 1945
Ceylon Sri Lanka 1/4, 1/2, 1, and 5 Cents 1870 to 1945

Check the date, Kelli. If your coin has King George VI, it can't be dated 1957. British colonies like Ceylon (Sri Lanka today) always carry the likeness of the reigning British monarch on the front. Copper coins from Ceylon with 1/4, 1/2, and 1 cent denominations date back to Queen Victoria. Then, whenever the monarch changed, so did the coinage. The common tie of all these coins is the reverse side, which has a circled palm tree design.

This page applies to copper coins with the palm tree. Some coins and some dates use other designs and metals (silver and gold), and this page does not apply to them.

Find your coin in the listings of approximate catalogs below. As always on CoinQuest, apply the concepts on our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

Hello, i have some old coins which are made from 1942 to 1950 so how to i sell these coins & what are the prices that i can sell those????
- yadeesha
Selling coins requires work and involves risk. You must first look up your coins in catalogs or on the Internet to get an idea of approximate value. Then you must advertise your coins to collectors and run the transactions. The easiest way to advertise coins like yours is on the eBay web site. - CoinQuest (Paul)
