East Africa 50 Cents, Shilling, and Florin 1920 to 1958
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.
Coin: 5272 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
