    Better known now as the US Virgin Islands.
    Anyway, I like the coinage issued under Danish colonial rule.
    Coins are often dual denominated in cents and bits at 1 cent = 5 bits.
    Even the most common types tend to sell for several dollars.

    Newest pickup: Danish West Indies, 5 cents = 25 bits, 1905, Christian IX, Nickel

    My others: 1905 1 cent/5 bit and 2 cents/10 bits 5 bit.jpeg
    10 bit.jpeg
    If you have any coins from there, please post them!
