Danish West Indies 1 cent  1859 to 1883
Danish West Indies 1 cent 1859 to 1883

These are generally quite valuable coins and searchable by collectors. They come from the Danish West Indies (the US Virgin Islands today) and show a crowned shield of Denmark with ruler King Christian IX and denomination within wreath on the other side. Coins dated before 1868 look the same, but bear the name of Frederik instead of Christian.

Typical catalog values run like this. Coins dated 1879 are especially valuable.
