Malaysia Straits Settlement 1 Dollar 1903 to 1926

Straits Settlements was a British crown colony on the Malay Peninsula of Asia. It was formed in 1828 by combining Singapore, Penang, and Malacca. These big and bold one dollar coins were issued in silver as follows:

1903 to 1904 (King Edward VII): 0.780 troy ounces silver
1907 to 1909 (King Edward VII): 0.585 ounces silver
1919 to 1926 (King George V): 0.271 ounces

These coins are never worth less than their silver content (look up the price of silver at kitco.com) but they generally carry additional collector premium due to collector demand. Typically:
