Rhodesia (Southern, Zimbabwe) Half Crown  1932 to 1954
Rhodesia (Southern, Zimbabwe) Half Crown 1932 to 1954

The dates of this series from Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe today) cover George V, George VI, and Elizabeth II, so those monarchs appear on the 'heads' side. The same crown shield design appears on the 'tails' side.

Precious metal content for these coins go like this:

1932 to 1942: 0.421 troy ounces silver
1943 to 1946: 0.227 ounces silver
1947 to 1954: copper-nickel, zero silver

Not many of these coins were minted, and not many survive today, especially in uncirculated condition. So the lack of supply pushes up the price due to collector demand. Here are typical catalog values for these coins. You must use our Terminology page to properly interpret these catalog values.

worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value

half crowns dated 1934 and 1939 are somewhat more rare and these catalog values double for those dates
