Malaysia Straits Settlements 5, 10, 20, and 50 Cents 1871 to 1927
Straits Settlements is a former British Crown colony on Asia's Malay Penninsula. Coins in 5, 10, 20, and 50 cent denominations all show the reigning British monarch (Victoria, Edward, George) on one side, and an encircled denomination on the other. These coins are silver.
Thanks to Baldwin's for the photos of the 5 cent coins. The silver one sold for $2100 in a 2014 auction, while the copper-nickel coin sold for $235 during the same year.
NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.
