Honduras (British) 5, 10, 25, and 50 Cents 1894 to 1973

The country is called Belize today, but since 1825 it was called British Honduras, located just to the north of Honduras in Central America.

As a British Colony the coins bore the likeness of the reigning monarch, from Victoria to Edward VII to George V to George VI and finally Elizabeth II. British Honduras became Belize in 1973.

These coins are no slouches when it comes to value. Some early coins are very valuable in well preserved conditions. The listings below give approximate catalog values.
