Sales History

On the first of April 1867 the Straits Settlements became a Crown Colony and while lower silver denominations were struck from 1971, the fifty cent wasn't produced until 1886. The first fifty cent was struck at the Royal mint in London. The reverse design features a design similar to the lower silver denominations with a partitioned ring design with 50 in the inner circle with the legend , STRAITS SETTLEMENTS. FIFTY CENTS with the date following. The obverse features the young head portrait of Queen Victoria as designed by William Wyon.The Victorian fifty cent series is the toughest series to collect from the colony with numerous rarities such as the 1889 and 1893 pieces with mintages of 32,000 and 24,000 respectively. All dates are rare in AU or higher grades with mint state graded pieces from any date being highly desirable.
