East Africa (Uganda) 25 Cents and 50 Cents  1906 to 1919
East Africa (Uganda) 25 Cents and 50 Cents 1906 to 1919

Uganda was a British Protectorate until 1962. These coins were minted under kings George V and Edward VII, so the king's portrait changes after 1910.

25 CENTS: 0.075 troy ounces silver
50 CENTS: 0.150 ounces silver

The spiffy lion-and-mountains design attracts collectors, and the values are not too shabby:

25 CENTS:
worn: $4 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $45
fully uncirculated: $75
25 cents dated 1918 are quite rare, they catalog at $300 in average circulated condition, and $1000 fully uncirculated

50 CENTS:
worn: $8 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $85
fully uncirculated: $160
50 cents dated 1918 are quite rare, they catalog at $200 in average circulated condition, and $500 fully uncirculated
50 cents dated 1919 are very rare, they catalog at $400 in average circulated condition, and $1500 fully uncirculated
