Honduras (British Honduras, Belize) 1 Cent  1911 to 1954
Honduras (British Honduras, Belize) 1 Cent 1911 to 1954

British Honduras was part of what is now Guatemala, south and east of Mexico and north of modern Honduras. Today British Honduras is called Belize. It is the site of the ancient Mayan civilization. It was under British rule until 1973.

The copper 1 cent coins of British Honduras are not easy to find, and their collector value is substantial for a lowly, copper, 1 cent coin. Three different rulers appear on the front, and the twined ivy ring appears on the back of all coins.

Here are some approximate catalog values.
