Malaysia Straits Settlements 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Cent  1862
Malaysia Straits Settlements 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Cent 1862

You present an interesting coin, sir or madam. It is not one you see very much. Your coin is from the Straits Settlements, now known as West Malaysia, with its major city Singapore, on the Malay Peninsula of Asia. In 1862 it was part of British India, hence the bust of Queen Victoria and the inscription India Straits.

These are valuable coins

The one cent coins are much more common than their smaller counterparts. The 1/4 and 1/2 cent coins carry the same design as the 1 cent coins except, of course, for the denomination on the reverse side.
