East Africa 50 Cents, Shilling, and Florin 1920 to 1958 | east africa shilling florin 50 rex ind circle lion crown et mountain volcano 1 imp v afrikaanshe shillings afrik cent Coins marked East Africa circulated in areas where Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Somalia are today. They are British coins and thus have the reigning monarch on the front. Our picture shows King George V. Yours may show King George VI or Queen Elizabeth. The back is the same (with the lion), and the values are not affected by the kings or queen.

These are approximate catalog values for East Africa half shillings (50 cents), shillings, and florins.

HALF SHILLING (50 CENTS)
worn: $2 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved (like our picture): $8
fully uncirculated: $12
coins dated after 1948 are worth about one-third of these values

SHILLING
worn: $2 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved (like our picture): $12
fully uncirculated: $45
coins dated after 1948 are worth about one-third of these values
Shillings dated 1923 are worth about twice these values, and if you can find a 1943 date, you have a $200 coin even in worn condition.

FLORIN
worn: $15 US dollars
average circulated: $65
well preserved: $150
fully uncirculated: $350
For florins with an A mint mark, these values are multiplied by about five. A florin dated 1921 catalogs over $4000 in fully uncirculated condition.

Please realize that we have quoted catalog values, and actual values will be less. Use our Important Terminology page to understand how much less.
